Gastrointestinal surgery encompasses various surgical procedures involving the stomach, intestines, and occasionally other abdominal structures like the liver or spleen.
At Black Mountain, we handle a range of cases that may necessitate gastrointestinal surgery, including emergency and preventative gastropexy (for gastric torsion treatment), gastrotomy (to extract foreign objects from the stomach), hernia repair (to reposition intestines), intestinal biopsies (for diagnosing gastrointestinal issues), among other procedures.
Urogenital surgery involves surgical procedures on the urinary tract, typically focusing on the urinary bladder or urethra, as well as reproductive organs such as the penis, testicles, vagina, ovaries, and uterus.
At Black Mountain, we conduct various urogenital surgeries, including PU surgery (creating a new urination opening for pets), urethropexy (correcting urethral prolapse), cystotomy (removing bladder stones or masses), spays and neuters (preventing breeding), anal sacculectomy (eliminating anal glands), and more. While procedures may differ, rest assured that your pet is in capable hands at Black Mountain.
Masses are a frequent occurrence in pets, particularly in dogs rather than cats. They may develop on the skin's surface, within it, or just beneath. Varying in size from a few millimeters to as large as a football, masses can indicate diverse conditions, ranging from simple skin tags and substantial fatty growths to scars and potential malignant cancers.
If you observe a mass on your pet, we recommend bringing them in for a diagnostic evaluation. Our veterinarians typically initiate the assessment by performing a fine needle aspirate (FNA), extracting and examining cells from the mass.
Our team radiates positivity and happiness in the workplace, as it sets the tone and influences the overall atmosphere of the clinic and our interactions with clients. Despite the challenges and emotional demands of our work, we maintain a bright and compassionate outlook, even during difficult times.
Aural hematoma refers to the formation of a blood-filled pocket beneath the skin and cartilage of the pinna (ear flap). It is frequently observed in dogs experiencing chronic ear infections and occasionally occurs in cats as well.
This condition arises when trauma or injury to the ear flap leads to the rupture of small blood vessels within the pinna, causing internal bleeding and the formation of a blood-filled swelling. Surgical intervention involves draining the blood pocket and skillfully stitching the ear to prevent the recurrence of the pocket filling.
