Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs and spinal surgery to name a few.
Our veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These may include:
- Cranial cruciate ligament repair
- Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
Complicated orthopaedic cases will be referred to specialist orthopaedic surgeons. Specialists do frequently visit Coast Animal Health, pending case requirements. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
