Quality Orthopedic Surgical Services For Travelers Rest Pets

Broken bones can happen in the most unlikely ways for our pets. A particularly energetic jump off the front porch, a failed attempt to jump a fence, or the all too common run-in with a car can all cause serious orthopedic injuries. Sometimes these injuries will heal correctly with external stabilization (a cast) and rest, but sometimes the more serious injuries or those that just will not heal, require surgical repair.

Do not allow your pet to suffer needlessly! If he or she is limping for more than a day, it is time to contact us and get veterinary assistance. Oftentimes our pets will try to behave as if they are not in pain. This can lead to untreated fractures or soft tissue damage that can become a serious health problem.

Orthopedic surgery is complex and detailed work. Depending upon the seriousness of the injury, a fracture can require pinning or plating to stabilize the bones enough to allow them to heal.

Orthopedic Surgical Repair

Some pets require orthopedic surgery to correct damage to soft tissues such as tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Typically this type of surgery is only necessary after a period of conservative treatment has failed. Conservative treatment can include rest, anti-inflammatory medications, casting, or bracing of the affected joint.
