What is a Mass?
A mass, also known as a lump or bump, is an abnormal growth of tissue on your pet’s body. These masses can occur anywhere on your pet’s body, and they can be caused by a variety of factors, such as infection, inflammation, or cancer.
What is Mass Removal?
Mass removal is a surgical procedure that involves removing the mass and any surrounding tissue to ensure that all cancerous or abnormal cells are removed. This procedure may be recommended if the mass is suspected to be cancerous or if it is causing discomfort or interfering with your pet’s quality of life.
What is the Mass Removal Process Like?
The mass removal process begins with a comprehensive examination and diagnostic tests, such as blood work, imaging, or biopsy, to determine the nature of the mass and ensure that your pet is healthy enough for surgery. If surgery is recommended, our experienced veterinarians will perform the procedure using advanced techniques and equipment to minimize pain, reduce the risk of complications, and ensure a speedy recovery.
After the procedure, we will provide you with detailed instructions for post-operative care, including pain management and monitoring for any signs of complications. In most cases, pets can return to their normal activities within a few days to a week after surgery.
