Soft Tissue Surgery

At Hilltop Veterinary Clinic, our Veterinarians are experienced in a wide variety of soft tissue surgery beyond routine spays and neuters.  Some examples would be:

  • Caesarian Section
  • Cystotomy (bladder stone removal)
  • Pyometra (removal of the uterus when it is infected)
  • Exploratory Surgery for conditions such as abdominal tumours (spleen removal due to splenic tumours, etc)
  • Foreign Body Removal
  • Lump Removal
  • Eye surgery to correct congenital abnormalities such as entropion and prolapsed gland of the third eyelid ("Cherry Eye"), as well as enucleation (eye removal) of diseased or damaged eyes. 
  • Laceration and bite wound repair
  • Removal of porcupine quills
  • Emergency GVD (twisted stomach, bloat) surgery and prophylactic stomach tack surgery to reduce the risk of GDV. 

Below are pictures of a cystotomy, or bladder stone removal. The stone pictured on the left and the bladder with stone in it on the right.
