If your pet has swallowed a foreign body or suffers from some types of soft tissue disease affecting its internal organs, your veterinarian might need to perform general surgery to treat the condition. Veterinarians today have the ability to make use of advanced diagnostic tools such as MRI and CT to shed light on many medical conditions, and to enhance the accuracy of all forms of treatment, including surgery. Dr. Gary Ellison will discuss how general surgery is being used today to treat dogs and cats and what you should know if you are contemplating a surgical procedure for your pet.
