Tumor Removal at Morgan Pet Clinic
Learning that your pet has a tumor can be one of the scariest experiences. However, pet surgery is one of the best ways to ensure pets have a good chance. At Morgan Pet Clinic in Omaha, ME, our animal hospital wants to help you with every step, from your first pet care visit to when your pet undergoes anesthesia. Below are many ways our veterinarians can help you and your pet during this difficult time.
What Is Tumor Removal Pet Surgery?
Tumor removal pet surgery is a type of surgery that removes tumors from your pet’s body. Depending on the size and location of the tumor, our veterinarians may use various techniques to remove it, including laser surgery or traditional open-surgical methods. Some common tumors we might remove include:
- Lipomas (benign fatty tumors)
- Sebaceous cysts (nonmalignant growths on the skin)
- Mast cell tumors (cancerous tumors found on the skin and in internal organs)
What to Expect from Tumor Removal Pet Surgery?
At Morgan Pet Clinic, we strive to ensure your pet is safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. We use the latest techniques and equipment to provide the best possible outcome for your pet. During the surgery, we will monitor your pet’s vital signs, including body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure. We also use special imaging techniques, such as X-rays or ultrasounds, to get detailed images of the tumor before removing it.
Once your pet has undergone anesthesia, our veterinarian will start by incision at the tumor's location and then carefully remove it from surrounding tissue with a scalpel or surgical scissors. In some cases, we may need to perform additional treatments after removing the tumor (such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy) to treat the condition entirely.
After your pet is discharged, we’ll provide you with detailed care instructions and answer any questions you may have about their recovery. We also encourage frequent check-ups to monitor your pet’s progress during its post-surgery healing period.
