Surgeries that involve the skeletal system and the tendons and ligaments associated with the bones fall into the category of orthopedics. Orthopedic surgeries are highly specialized to each patient and require thorough diagnostics prior to being performed. The veterinarians at Martensville Veterinary Hospital can help your pet return to normal function by working with you to diagnose and treat orthopedic concerns. If orthopedic surgery is required for your pet we can book an orthopedic surgery at our hospital. Orthopedic surgeries we offer include:
- Patellar luxation repair
- Cruciate ligament repair
All of our surgery procedures include intravenous (IV fluids) to support blood pressure, ECG heart monitoring, blood pressure monitoring, respiratory monitoring, temperature monitoring, pain medication during and after surgery, and pain medication to go home. Depending on the surgery your pet requires there may be additional medications, treatments or foods that your pet will require to recover quickly and successfully.
