Orthopaedic

Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture and ligament repairs or amputations to name a few.
There can be a variety of reasons why animals may require orthopeadic surgery; to repair, to allieviate pain, to support or to remove damaged tissue. Injuries in working dogs or motor vehicle accidents are very common problems that can initiate the presentation of a lame animal to the vets.

Our veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These may include:

  • Cranial cruciate ligament repair

  • Fracture (broken bone) repair

  • Amputations for severe injuries

  • Luxating patella's

  • Traumatic dislocations

  • Arthritis managament

Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, will need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
