​What is Small Animal Orthopaedics?

Orthopaedics is the field of medicine and surgery that treats injury and disease of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons of the body. Our Small Animal Orthopaedics service primarily treats dogs and cats.​​

Our team's mission is to enhance the quality of life of pets and their owners through effective treatment of musculoskeletal injury and disease. We combine our "high touch" vow to treat our patients just as we treat our own pets with our state-of-the-art orthopaedic techniques and technology.

​What Orthopaedic Treatments Do You Offer?

We can treat many orthopaedic conditions, but some of our most common procedures include treatment of:

  • Cranial cruciate ligament tear
  • Patellar luxation
  • Bone fractures
  • Elbow dysplasia
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Osteoarthritis

How Much Does it Cost?

Every patient is unique and the cost of your pet's care will vary depending on the diagnostic testing required, the type of treatment provided, and the severity of their condition. Our specialists will discuss the cost and medical care options with you, and provide you a cost estimate at your appointment.
