Understanding Pet Mass Removals

Pet masses, often called lumps or tumors, are readily concerning to most pet owners. While not all masses are harmful, their presence may warrant further investigation. Pet mass removals involve the surgical extraction of these masses to determine their nature and address potential health implications.

The Importance of Pet Mass Removals

Pet mass removals serve a dual purpose: they are both preventive and diagnostic. Removing a mass not only eliminates potential health risks associated with certain types of masses but also provides the opportunity to conduct diagnostic testing to determine the nature of the mass.

Key Aspects of Pet Mass Removals

At Cat & Dog Hospital Of Columbia, our approach to pet mass removals involves:

Thorough Evaluation

Our veterinarians thoroughly examine the mass, considering factors such as size, location, and any associated symptoms.

Pre-Surgical Assessment

Before the procedure, we conduct pre-surgical assessments, including bloodwork and other diagnostic tests, to ensure your pet is suitable for surgery.

Surgical Intervention

The removal procedure is performed with precision and care, considering the unique characteristics of the mass and its location.

When Pet Mass Removals are Necessary

Pet owners should be attentive to signs indicating the need for mass removals, including:

Changes in Size or Shape

Rapid growth or changes in the size and shape of a mass may warrant removal.

Ulceration or Bleeding

Masses that exhibit signs of ulceration or bleeding may require prompt attention.

Functional Implications

Masses that interfere with your pet’s ability to move, eat, or perform daily activities may be recommended for removal.

Our Approach to Pet Mass Removals

  • Post-Surgical Monitoring: We prioritize post-surgical care, closely monitoring your pet’s recovery and providing aftercare guidance.
