Orthopedic Services for Pets

From time to time your pet may experience pain and discomfort in their bones or joints. Your loyal companion will communicate pain to you through their actions or unwillingness to be active. Fortunately, our team of veterinarians have several years of experience in diagnosing and providing treatment for orthopedic issues.

What are common orthopedic conditions in pets?

Our clinic often sees pets with orthopedic conditions that range from mild to severe. Common conditions include: fractures, arthritis, torn ligaments and hip dysplasia. Your pet’s risk exposure to these conditions is dependent on their age, weight and breed.

  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
