Soft tissue surgery for pets is a type of surgery designed to repair, remove, or reconstruct any part of the pet's body that is not made of bone. This type of surgery can involve organs, muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissue structures. Soft tissue surgery can be used to treat many pet health issues, such as tumors, hernias, birth defects, torn ligaments, and certain types of infections.

It is sometimes used to help with the diagnosis of a pet's condition, as well. Soft tissue surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, and it requires a thorough pre-operative assessment and careful post-operative monitoring.
