Tumor Removal

Bridges Professional Park Animal Hospital: 

Assisting Newport Residents with Pet Surgery

Pet surgery is not an enjoyable process for any of the parties who are involved. Pet owners in Newport who find themselves in need of a veterinarian will often have a number of questions that require a timely and efficient answer. Our surgeons are on hand and ready to address a wide range of conditions and issues. 


How Does a Veterinarian at Bridges Professional Park Animal Hospital Assist with Tumor Removal?

Tumor removal is one of the most common procedures that our veterinarians perform. Our experienced team can handle any and all questions that you may have about the procedure. We have a very simple objective: to make you and your pet as comfortable as possible before, during, and after the procedure. 

General anesthesia is used to carry out the majority of the surgical procedures that take place under our roof. The monitoring equipment that we use is state of the art and top of the line. This provides pet owners with the peace of mind that they need most during moments like this.

The same standardized procedures are followed for each and every tumor removal. Physical examinations are provided, so that a pet's health can be examined more fully. If there are any risk factors that need to be discussed, this step is taken care of before our expert veterinarians proceed any further.

Your Role in Your Pet's Care

We believe in empowering our clients to play an active role in the care of their pets. The process does not end once an animal has been discharged from Bridges Professional Park Animal Hospital. For example, we provide proper preparation for pet owners to take care of their pets during the recovery process.

Clients will need to be ready to dispense pain medications and handle any other tasks that are conducive to the animal's recovery. A tumor removal requires a great deal of nursing care and the role that you are going to play in the procedure is impossible to understate. 

How to Prepare for Pet Surgery

No food can be given to a pet undergoing surgery during the morning before the procedure. If any oral antibiotics have been prescribed to the pet, please be sure to distribute them in the directed manner.

Read What Our Clients Say

    Dr. Marci and the staff at Bridges have taken amazing care of my boys (who are not easy to work with I might add). They treat us like royalty and I wouldn’t trust my babies with anyone else. They are amazing, always so sweet, caring, and understanding. I just can’t thank them enough for keeping my sweet babies happy and healthy.

    Doctor Roxanne Taylor is the best most Professional Veterinarian. For the past 30 years she has been their for us and our dogs. She has the most loving caring heart of any Veterinarian I have ever met. Thank You Doc. Taylor for all you do! Ronnie & Debbie Ennis


    truly kind and caring doctor and staff. they honestly love animals and and put their patients above everything. I had to lay my dog down, it was a horrible time, and the doctor cared enough to make sure i got her paw print, some of her hair, and her ashes. Then i got a card in the mail from the vet herself that was heartfelt, they are not in it for the money, but for their love of animals.

    GERRI R.

    I’ve been taking my birds and dogs to Dr. Taylor and her staff for a very long time – one of my cockatiels is 22 years old (they're only supposed to reach 12!) In healthy times, sickness and emergencies, the folks at Bridges have been there for me with compassion and excellent care. They are such a part of the community and are always active in animal rescue events, rabies clinics, and any opportunity to support animal welfare. These folks care like family.

    RITA E.

    I have a very high regard for Dr. Taylor and her staff. They take great care of my pets, and during a recent emergency, I was really impressed by Dr. Taylor’s tenacious, detail-oriented diagnostics and resulting treatment recommendations. Bridges is also the vet for Siamese Cat Rescue efforts in this area. I love the staff. They are so willing to work with us and they really support our efforts in caring for these amazing creatures and helping find them safe and loving homes.


    Dr. Roxanne Taylor is a great, caring vet. I breed, raise and show champion Doberman Pinschers and Dr. Taylor has been my vet for 18 years. She is beyond caring; I can site thousands of incidents. She is very thorough; her motto is ‘let’s find out, let’s be sure.’ Her staff, oh my gosh, they know who you are when you call, are so personable and do everything to make the animals feel at home. They are accessible, honest and truly love what they do. I couldn’t imagine finding better vete


    Oh I love Roxanne! The best way I can describe my experience with her is total trust. She is honest, deeply compassionate and not afraid to refer you to a specialist when it’s in the best interest of the animal. She snatched one of my Yorkies from the grave twice within his first two years of life! And when my sister and I lost our Poodles, she was so comforting. Our dogs just wag their tails like crazy when they see her; that’s a testimonial in itself!

    THEDA “FAY” S.

    I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Taylor and her practice. They go to extraordinary lengths to help animals . . . and their people! Before I moved here from New Jersey, I brought my dog to Dr. Taylor whenever I visited my daughter. It was a long way to travel to see the vet, but she helped me bring an abused very scared animal to health. She is very upfront and helps me make good decisions for my pets with complete information. I’m very pleased with the service I’ve gotten at Bridges Animal


    Dr. Taylor has been treating our dogs for more than 20 years. We breed show dogs and therapy dogs and are very particular. The folks at Bridges are gentle, kind and have never let us down. We have complete confidence in them and wouldn’t go anyplace else. We are really lucky to get to work with them.
