What are Soft Tissue Injuries?
Soft tissue is the layer of tissue that is located under the skin. This soft tissue can encounter rips, tears, bleeding, sprains, and strains, just like in humans. In pets, soft tissue injuries can be difficult to see since they may be covered by fur. Your pet might have an injury if they have suffered from an accident, such as being hit by a vehicle or bicycle, a fight with another animal, or simply getting caught in a fence.
Are Soft Tissue Repairs Beneficial?
Soft tissue repairs can include placing a cast on an injury, icing the injury, providing medication to reduce inflammation and pain, and surgery to repair ligament and muscle tears. When you visit us, our veterinarians can determine which option would be best to repair your cat or dog’s injuries.
No matter which treatment we decide is most suitable for your furry friend, we provide you with advance on how to ensure they stay comfortable and healthy during the healing process. Our vets can also provide follow-up care during the recovery process. As your pet ages or if they become injured again or face health issues like arthritis and pain, it's even more vital to visit our veterinarians as soon as possible for a soft tissue injury. If your cat or dog is yelping or howling, bleeding, bruising, or swelling, these can all be signs of a traumatic injury and should be checked out by our doctors immediately.
