Soft Tissue Veterinary Surgeryby Dr. Tom Tullio of True Care Veterinary Hospital

True Care Veterinary Hospital ensures the safest comprehensive veterinary procedures for your pet through advanced technology and experienced professionals.

What Is Soft Tissue Surgery?

Soft tissue surgeries generally include respiratory, hepatic, oncologic, thoracic, abdominal, and reconstructive procedures.

Dr. Tullio is experienced in soft tissue surgeries, including those of the stomach and intestines. Procedures of the gastrointestinal system include foreign body removal and tumor resection, as well as spleen, liver, gall bladder, urinary bladder, heart, eye, and nervous system surgeries.

True Care Veterinary Hospital is equipped with the modern instrumentation and equipment necessary to perform efficient and successful soft tissue surgery. Diagnostic support includes the advanced technology of digital radiology, veterinary ultrasound, and endoscopy for clarity and accuracy in obtaining diagnostic information. Only the safest available anesthetic agents are used, and patients are continually monitored from initiation to full recovery.

As soon as possible, your pet will be sent home to heal in a familiar and loving environment. Pet owners are given clear and detailed instructions for post-surgical recovery. Your pet’s veterinarian personally addresses questions or concerns you may have—for the comfort and security you deserve in caring for a recovering animal.

We encourage you to visit the hospitalization, ICU and anesthesia pages of our website for more about the services available to patients at True Care Veterinary Hospital.

He is a man I trust completely and have and do refer others to him. Any pet owner can feel safe and secure in trusting their beloved pets to his skilled hands.

When my parents’ dog Kya died very suddenly a few years ago‚ their regular vet was not at work that day. But thankfully‚ Dr. Tullio was and treated my parents and their dog as if he was their doctor for the past 15 years—doing everything he could to try and revive Kya and by being so compassionate to my parents in the waiting room after having to deliver the sad news. We truly can’t say enough nice things about Dr. Tullio and can’t wait for him to open his new facility! Thank you.

Molly and Oscar have been patients of Dr. Tullio for several years. I have been very pleased with his care‚ his expertise‚ and his understanding with my two Wheatens. Dr. Tullio has been quick to diagnose any issues and remedy all of the problems we’ve had. I look forward to many more years working with Dr. Tullio. I wish him well in his venture.
