Our orthopedic services cater to your pet’s broken bones, fractures and inflamed joints. These issues can develop through genetics, as some animals are vulnerable to certain conditions, or through injuries. Regardless of how they originate, your pet is likely uncomfortable, in pain and should be treated as soon as possible. Call us at 613-354-1020 to book an appointment and see how we can treat your pet’s orthopedic ailment.
How will I know my pet is experiencing orthopedic pain?
Orthopedic issues occur along your pet’s skeletal system. These are the parts of their body they lean on and use for bending, jumping and running. If your pet is having difficulty exercising, is resistant to being touched and is sleeping in awkward positions, it’s likely they’re trying to avoid aggravating the afflicted area. These are signs your pet is experiencing orthopedic pain and should be seen by a veterinarian.
How do you diagnose diseases or injuries in my pet’s body?
We use non-invasive diagnostic tools to look into your pet’s body. X-rays (radiographs) and ultrasounds give us a clear and immediate picture of your pet’s body. We’re able to tell if their bones or joints are inflamed, broken or experiencing odd growths.
Are you able to perform orthopedic surgeries on pets?
Yes! Our veterinarians perform a variety of surgeries to treat musculoskeletal conditions. They conduct knee repairs, femoral head ostectomies (FHO), fix fractures and so much more. If you’re curious about a specific treatment for your pet, don’t hesitate to call us and inquire.
