Veterinary Orthopedics in Maywood
Helping Your Pets Heal from Injuries
Does your pet have a limp due to an injury? Have you noticed your cat has a difficult time walking? Unfortunately, pets can sustain injuries which affect their bones or spine and require more intricate treatment. At The Maywood Veterinary Clinic, we are happy to offer orthopedic services to help animals recover from injuries, fix congenital deformities and abnormalities, or recover from degenerative bone or joint conditions. Our goal is to improve or restore your pet’s mobility.
Our Orthopedic Services
Because the muscular-skeletal system in animals is so intricate, many different types of injuries and conditions can affect it. These can range from fractures to more serious conditions, such as osteoarthritis. When you bring your pet in, we will first take some diagnostic images, such as x-rays, to determine the precise location of the injury or pain.
Once our veterinarians have confirmed a diagnosis, we will be able to help your pet heal through one of the following services:
- Repair of fractures: Oftentimes, when cats or dogs have complex fractures, surgery is needed to pin bones together.
- ACL repairs: Just like in humans, dogs can tear their ACL, which is a serious and painful injury that limits mobility. To repair this, we perform a procedure that stabilizes the joint and allows your pet to resume normal activity.
- Medial patellar luxation repair: Sometimes pets, especially dogs, experience issues where their kneecap becomes unstable and slowly slips out of position. Our veterinary surgeons are capable of performing surgery that stabilizes the kneecap, keeping it permanently in place to prevent further instances of this problem.
- Joint surgery: Whether your pet suffers from arthritis or is experiencing joint degeneration simply due to aging, we can discuss whether joint surgery would benefit your pet. Oftentimes, pets who receive this surgery experience pain relief and increased mobility.
