No pet parent wants to see their companion in pain

No pet parent wants to see their companion in pain. Unfortunately, there are a number of orthopedic issues that can cause pain and discomfort in dogs and cats. While maintaining a healthy lifestyle for your pet can keep some problems at bay, there is still a chance that they could develop problems with their bones and joints as they age. At Companion Animal Hospital, we provide several orthopedic services in-house through a traveling expert orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Hicks.

Orthopedic Services

Dr. David Hicks of Advanced Mobile Veterinary Surgery, Inc. provides on-site orthopedic surgery at Companion Animal Hospital. As a result, we are able to perform complex surgical procedures in our clinic rather than sending pets to a different location. Orthopedic surgeries that we are equipped to handle include:
  • Fracture repair
  • Femoral head osteotomy
  • Medial patella luxation
  • Tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO)
  • Patellar luxation
  • Perineal hernia repair
If your pet is experiencing any sort of problem involving their bones, ligaments or joints, our orthopedic team can help reduce pain and restore range of motion. Every animal is thoroughly assessed and given a customized treatment plan to ensure the best possible results. To learn more about our pet orthopedic services or to schedule an appointment, please contact Companion Animal Hospital today.
