Essential Guide to Pet Orthopedic Surgery: What You Need to Know

At Pawsitive Veterinary Clinic, we are committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care for your pets, understanding that they are valued family members. One of the critical services we offer is orthopedic surgery, a specialized area of veterinary medicine that addresses bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons.

This guide aims to offer insight into orthopedic surgery, what you can expect, and why Pawsitive Veterinary Clinic is a trusted choice for these essential procedures.

Understanding Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery involves a range of procedures designed to address and correct ailments and injuries within the musculoskeletal system. These surgeries can range from repairing fractures to correcting congenital anomalies, such as hip dysplasia, and even procedures aimed at alleviating pain in older pets suffering from degenerative joint diseases.


When is Orthopedic Surgery Needed?

Your pet may require orthopedic surgery for any number of reasons, including fractures, dislocations, torn ligaments (such as the ACL in dogs), hip or elbow dysplasia, and certain degenerative joint conditions. Symptoms that could indicate a musculoskeletal issue include limping, difficulty standing up or lying down, reluctance to exercise, and noticeable pain when performing certain movements.


Pawsitive Veterinary Clinic's Approach to Orthopedic Surgery

Our approach to orthopedic surgery is rooted in a commitment to utilizing the latest surgical technology and advanced surgical techniques. Our experienced veterinarians and skilled technicians are adept at performing a wide array of orthopedic surgeries, ensuring your pet receives the best possible care.


Our Surgical Services

We offer a comprehensive range of surgical services, including but not limited to:

  • Fracture repairs
  • Joint surgery, including hip and elbow dysplasia corrections
  • Ligament repairs, such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery
  • Corrections of congenital anomalies
  • Moreover, we utilize laparoscopic surgery for certain procedures, a minimally invasive technique that promotes quicker recovery and less pain for your pet.


The Surgical Process

Prior to any surgical procedure, a thorough examination and assessment of your pet’s condition are conducted to determine the most appropriate course of action. We prioritize educating and involving pet owners in this process, ensuring you are well-informed about the benefits and risks associated with the surgery.

During surgery, your pet’s safety and comfort are our top priorities. Our surgical team meticulously monitors all vital signs throughout the procedure, employing the latest in technology and surgical practices. Post-surgery, we provide comprehensive instructions for care at home, including pain management strategies to support a smooth and comfortable recovery.
