Orthopaedic Surgery

From broken bones to joint problems, our highly skilled veterinarians experienced in orthopaedic surgery and are committed to getting the best outcome for your pet’s health.

What is orthopaedic surgery?
Orthopaedic surgery relates to your pet’s bones. Commonly our vets perform orthopaedic surgeries to repair broken bones or correct defects such as luxating patella and ruptured cruciate ligaments in dogs.

If your pet requires orthopaedic surgery our friendly staff will explain to you exactly what’s involved and what you’ll need to do, but here are the basics.

In the morning
The pet will be admitted into our surgical ward in the morning. You can accompany your pet to help them settle in and our dedicated staff will be on hand to care for your pet. We’ll do a pre-anaesthetic exam, and usually sedate your pet a few hours before the surgery is scheduled.

During surgery
General anaesthesia will be administered by our expert surgeon, and surgery is performed under close observation from the team of experienced nursing staff. Blood pressure, breathing rate and blood oxygen levels are monitored while our expert surgeon carries out the operation. We continue to monitor the pet during the recovery stage and they will be clean, dry, warm and settled in our state of the art practice.

What then?
In most cases pets are able to return home once they are awake, walking, and have their pain under control. If there are any concerns about a pet’s recovery we may keep them overnight for observation – your pet’s health is our top priority. Once your pet has returned home we will provide you with comprehensive post-surgery care instructions.

If you’re worried about your pet’s health, call us to make an appointment today.
