However, the two most common reasons are soft tissue injuries and the need to spay or neuter them. Regardless of whether your pet needs a common or complex surgical treatment, Town & Country Veterinary Hospital has it covered.
When an animal gets a soft tissue injury, it can be very painful for them. Soft tissue includes any muscle, tissue, ligament, nerves, and other connective or protective structures inside the body. Some of the most frequently seen tissue injuries in animals include strained and sprained muscles and tendon tears. These are often seen when furry friends jump, leap, or run with force. Our trained veterinarians can fix your friend right up! Other soft-tissue procedures include lump removal, foreign body removal, etc.
Spaying and neutering are processes that remove the reproductive organs from a female or male pet, respectively. This is often seen as necessary, as it reduces the number of animals that end up in shelters yearly, and it prevents your pet from developing potential reproductive illnesses and cancers. Spaying and neutering can curb problematic behaviors, too, and make your favorite fur baby even more enjoyable to live with.
