Soft TIssue Surgery

The veterinary surgeons at Bonny Hills Vet are experienced in all forms of soft tissue surgery and are committed to getting the best outcome for your pet’s health.


What is soft tissue surgery?

The body’s soft tissues are those parts not associated with the nervous (e.g. brain) and musculoskeletal (bone) systems. Soft tissue surgery is a broad discipline and includes many surgeries you might already be familiar with,

  • Desexing
  • Large mass or lump removals
  • Caesareans
  • Respiratory & chest surgery
  • Heart, liver and intestinal surgery
  • Foreign material removals
  • Urinary tract surgery

If your pet requires soft tissue surgery at Bonny Hills Vet, our friendly staff will explain to you exactly what’s involved and what you’ll need to do, but here’s what you can generally expect.


In the morning

The pet will be admitted into our surgical ward in the morning, at a time that will work for you, your pet, and our team’s surgery schedule for the day. Our dedicated staff will be on hand to care for your pet. We’ll do a pre-anaesthetic exam, in most cases some pre anaesthetic blood work, and we will usually sedate your pet shortly before the surgery is scheduled.


During surgery

General anaesthesia will be administered by our surgeon, and surgery is performed under close observation from the team of experienced nursing staff. Blood pressure, heart rate, ECG, breathing rate and blood oxygen levels are monitored while our surgeon carries out the operation. We continue to monitor the pet during the recovery stage and they will be clean, dry, warm and settled in our veterinary hospital.


What then

In most cases pets are able to return home once they are awake, walking, and have their pain under control. If there are any concerns about a pet’s recovery we may keep them overnight for observation. Your pet’s health is our top priority. Once your pet has returned home, Bonny Hills Vet will provide you with comprehensive post-surgery care instructions.


Orthopaedic Surgery

Bonny Hills Vet Clinic offers some basic orthopaedic procedures, and for larger surgeries, we refer to vet hospitals equipped to perform more advanced procedures.
