Dr. McCarron performs soft tissue surgery at South Hingham Veterinary Services. She has many years of experience and completed an internship in small animal surgery. In addition, our certified veterinary technician Mandy was previously employed in the anesthesia department at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital so our monitoring is state-of-the-art. Examples of soft tissue surgery include: removal of a foreign body from the gastrointestinal tract, removal of bladder stones, removal of certain types of tumors from the abdomen, and removal of the spleen in cases of bleeding or cancer. In most cases animals can be directly discharged home to the owner for observation. Depending on the time of day and the level of invasiveness of the procedure a dog or cat may need to recover overnight at a 24 hour facility in the area.
