Orthopedic Services

We perform many examinations each year on animals that are lame or limping. Many times radiographs are necessary to evaluate the limbs, pelvis, and spine. We offer OFA certification. The OFA program is designed to help detect and reduce the incidence of conditions such as hip and elbow dysplasia. Our orthopedic surgical services include: fracture repair (including intramedullary bone pinning), FHO (a surgical correction for hip dysplaisa), cruciate repair (like ACL repair), and wedge osteotomy (a correction of a knee problem affecting mainly smaller breed dogs).
