Advanced Orthopedic Care: When your furry friend experiences bone, joint, or ligament problems, it can significantly impact their mobility and overall well-being. At our clinic, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive orthopaedic care for pets, aiming to restore their function, alleviate pain, and get them back to enjoying life. Our team of highly skilled orthopaedic specialists utilizes advanced techniques and a compassionate approach to address a wide range of orthopaedic conditions in pets.

Restoring Strength and Stability: Fractures, whether caused by accidents, falls, or underlying conditions, can be a painful and debilitating experience for your pet. Our orthopaedic specialists are experts in diagnosing and treating fractures of all types, from simple breaks to complex comminuted fractures. Here’s what you can expect when your pet requires fracture repair:

  • Accurate Diagnosis: Utilizing advanced imaging techniques like X-rays and CT scans, our veterinarians will precisely locate and evaluate the fracture to determine the most appropriate treatment approach.
  • Minimally Invasive Techniques: Whenever possible, we prioritize minimally invasive surgical techniques for fracture repair. To smaller incisions, quicker recovery times, and less pain for your pet.
  • Advanced Methods: Depending on the location and severity of the fracture, we utilize various internal fixation techniques like plates, screws, and pins to ensure proper bone alignment and healing.
  • Post-Operative Care: Our dedicated team will provide comprehensive post-operative care, including pain management, physical therapy, and rehabilitation to promote optimal healing and a full recovery of your pet’s mobility.

Ligament Surgery: Ligaments play a crucial role in connecting bones and providing joint stability. When ligaments tear, particularly the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) in the knee, it can cause significant pain and lameness. Our orthopaedic specialists offer advanced surgical techniques to address ligament injuries in pets.

  • Minimally Invasive Procedures: Similar to fracture repair, we prioritize minimally invasive techniques for ligament surgeries whenever possible. This reduces surgical trauma and promotes faster recovery.
  • Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO): This is a commonly performed surgical procedure for CCL tears in dogs. It involves cutting the tibia (shinbone) and rotating it to create a more stable angle for the knee joint, alleviating pressure on the CCL.
  • Other Ligament Repair Techniques: Our surgeons are skilled in various other ligament repair techniques depending on the specific location and severity of the injury.

Joint Pain Management: Chronic joint pain, often caused by conditions like osteoarthritis, can significantly impact your pet’s quality of life. Our team offers a comprehensive approach to joint pain management, including:

  • Medication: We may prescribe pain management medications to provide relief and improve your pet’s mobility.
  • Weight Management: Excess weight puts additional strain on joints. Helping your pet maintain a healthy weight can significantly improve their comfort and mobility.
  • Nutritional Supplements: Certain joint supplements can help promote cartilage health and reduce inflammation.
  • Physical Therapy: Rehabilitation exercises can help strengthen muscles surrounding the joints, improve stability, and reduce pain.

Helping Your Pet Walk Tall Again: By utilizing advanced surgical techniques, comprehensive pain management strategies, and effective rehabilitation therapies, our orthopaedic specialists strive to restore your pet’s mobility, alleviate pain, and get them back to the activities they love. We understand the importance of a full recovery, and our dedicated team will be with you every step of the way, offering support and guidance throughout your pet’s journey back to health.
