Orthopedic Surgery With Our Oakbrook Animal Hospital Veterinarians
Pet surgery can be an unnerving experience, no matter the type, and when it is orthopedic in nature, you may have some additional questions. Orthopedic surgery addresses the bone and musculature systems of your pet. At our Oakbrook Animal Hospital in Gardner, KS, we are experienced in providing surgery that can help to correct your cat or dog's arthritis, hip dysplasia, or ligament repair.
Does My Pet Need Orthopedic Surgery?
If your pet is limping or experiencing other mobility issues, orthopedic surgery may be a solution. We at Oakbrook Animal Hospital can screen your pet for the following conditions and determine if they are a good candidate for surgery:
- Hip Dysplasia
- Pain in the Hips, Knees, or Other Joints
There is a lengthy recovery process following any type of pet surgery, and orthopedic surgery can be even more complex with longer healing times. Joint deterioration occurs as pets age, similar to the degradation that happens in humans. However, certain breeds are more susceptible to issues with their hips, knees, and other joints and their injuries may cause them a high level of pain. Our team in Gardner, KS can meet with you and your pet to review their overall health, and evaluate their fitness for a major surgery.
If your pet undergoes surgery at Oakbrook Animal Hospital, you can be rest assured that our vets and our entire team will do all that we can to make your pet as comfortable as possible. Minimizing stress is also important before and after surgery, and our team is dedicated to providing the compassionate care that your pet deserves.
Following surgery, your pet will begin the lengthy recovery process, during this time we will work closely with you to keep your pet comfortable and as pain-free as possible. Post-surgery, you will need to make sure that your pet stays at a healthy weight to relieve pressure on their joints. As they become stronger we can work with you to establish an exercise regimen and tips for keeping your pet healthy.
