At All Care Animal Clinic in West Palm Beach, FL, we provide orthopedic care for animals, to help them enjoy pain-free movement.

Common Pet Orthopedic Problems

Animals who have been injured in an accident may require complex surgeries of the bones. Some larger breeds of dogs are subject to hip dysplasia, which can lead to pain and problems with movement. The elbows in canines can also suffer from dysplasia and may require treatment. Luxating patella is a condition that causes the kneecap to slide out of alignment, leading to pain and lameness.

Active dogs may experience a torn cruciate ligament, which is similar to the ACL in humans. Osteoarthritis can affect animals, just as it does humans, and treatment may be needed to reduce discomfort and improve mobility.

Treatment of Orthopedic Issues

Today, veterinarians can reach a range of treatments for orthopedic problems in animals. A number of medications have been developed specifically for veterinary use that help to reduce pain and improve function in affected joints. Physical therapy can often help to improve symptoms and allows more efficient movement. In addition, a number of pet surgery techniques have been refined to help animals with orthopedic problems to regain both comfort and normal movement. Your veterinarians will discuss the various options for treatment, their pros and cons, to determine what’s right for your pet.

Pet Surgery For Orthopedic Disorders

Several surgical procedures are done to correct orthopedic problems in animals. These surgeries often require a period of healing, and pet owners are instrumental in helping their pets recover quickly and completely. You may be asked to change dressings, administer medications and bring your pet in for follow-up visits. In some cases, physical therapy may be needed to optimize the results of the surgery. Your vet can provide full instructions for you to help your pet enjoy a full recovery from an orthopedic procedure.
