Is your pet suffering from a traumatic injury or a congenital condition that affects their joints or bones? Here at Deerfield Animal Hospital, we want your pet to live the healthiest and longest life possible. That is why we offer orthopedic surgery services.
Much like humans, cats and dogs can develop chronic degenerative diseases or issues in their joints. These conditions may be caused by predisposed conditions (more prevalent in certain breeds) or as the result of injuries such as bone fractures and breaks, torn ligaments, or disc slips. These injuries can lead to a variety of health problems, such as severe pain, limping, or mobility difficulties.
Orthopedic surgery covers both bone and joint repairs, such as:
Ligament & tendon reconstruction
Surgery for fractures or breaks
Anthroscopic joint surgery
Orthopedic surgery usually demands extensive rehabilitation and recovery time. Following orthopedic surgery, a dog typically requires two weeks of rest and immobility and will then undergo physical therapy and consistent monitoring by the pet owner. But, don’t worry- our orthopedic specialists will be here to walk you through every step of the way.
Orthopedic surgery may be the key to significantly improving the quality of your pet’s life, allowing them the chance to run, jump, and bounce freely once again!
