Is Orthopedic Pet Surgery Safe?

Orthopedic pet surgery is common and a safe way for your pet to get the treatment necessary in order to heal from a fracture, ligament rupture or joint dysfunction.

What Does Orthopedic Pet Surgery Often Treat?

Orthopedic pet surgery is used to correct fractured bones, repair torn ligaments and restore joint function. Just like people, pets can need a hip or knee replacement that can be done through surgery.

How Do I Pay for Orthopedic Surgery?

If you don't have pet insurance and your pet needs surgery, you may have financing options. Check with Care Credit to see if you qualify. This is a specific type of credit card designed to pay for veterinarian care.

How Can I Tell If My Pet Needs Surgery?

While a broken bone is going to be obvious, knee or hip problems may not be as clear. If you have noticed changes in your pet's ability to walk or run, it is time to bring your pet in for a checkup. Only an orthopedic veterinarian will be able to determine if surgery is the right step for your pet.

How Long Will Recovery Take?

Pets do well with recovery after orthopedic surgery. Your vet will help your pet through the recovery process with follow up exams, providing medication as necessary and making sure your pet is healing properly.
