Is your pet suffering from a traumatic injury or a congenital condition that affects their joints or bones? At Friendship Veterinary Hospital in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, we want your pet to live the healthiest and longest life possible. That’s why we offer orthopedic surgery services. Orthopedic surgery is the most effective form of surgery to correct a canine bone injury or joint condition.
Much like humans, cats and dogs can develop chronic degenerative diseases or issues in their joints. These conditions may be caused by predisposed conditions (more prevalent in certain breeds) or as the result of injuries such as bone fractures and breaks, torn ligaments, or disc slips. These injuries can lead to a variety of health problems, such as severe pain, limping, or mobility difficulties.
Pet orthopedic surgery includes:
Ligament & tendon reconstruction
Limb deformity correction
Surgery for fractures or breaks
Total hip, knee, and elbow replacements
Arthroscopic joint surgery
Minimally-invasive fracture surgery
Hip and elbow dysplasia repair
Orthopedic surgery usually demands extensive rehabilitation and recovery time. Following orthopedic surgery, a dog typically requires two weeks of rest and immobility, and will then undergo physical therapy and consistent monitoring by the pet owner. But, don’t worry - our veterinarians at Friendship Veterinary Hospital will be here to walk you through every step of the way or refer you to a veterinary orthopedic surgeon if needed.
Orthopedic surgery may be the key to significantly improving the quality of your pet’s life, allowing them the chance to run, jump, and bounce freely once again!
