Tumor Removal

How Tumor Removal Takes Place at Northwood Veterinary Hospital

At Northwood Veterinary Hospital, we know that the families of our patients view their pets as members of the family. They are loved and cared for by people who would do almost anything for their pets. For this reason, we understand just how devastating it can be for someone to hear that their pet has a tumor that needs to be removed. At the same time, please know that we have a reliable pet surgery team that is going to be with you every step of the way. It is our job to make sure that we provide you with a veterinarian who can help you and your pet.


Planning for the Operation

There are a few signs that a pet might have a tumor. First, many of the tumors that we treat are discovered by pet owners during the bathing process. In other cases, a vet might find a tumor during the annual physical, which is why these visits are so important. If we suspect that a tumor is present, we may decide to order imaging. This imaging is going to be important in helping our surgeons plan for exactly how they are going to remove the tumor. All of this is important for helping us provide the best possible care to your pet.

How the Tumor Removal Takes Place

If we decide that the best course of action is tumor removal, we’ll discuss it with you first. We want to make sure that any treatment is delivered by our pet surgery team in a collaborative nature. On the day of the operation, we will take your pet back to the operating area. There he will be placed under general anesthesia to prevent any unnecessary pain or stress. Then, we will remove the tumor as quickly and safely as possible. Once the operation is done, we will take your pet to a recovery area to wake up safely. We’ll be sure to keep you informed every step of the way.
