Orthopaedic surgery on animals includes any surgery that is related to bones or joints.
The most common procedures involved are fracture repairs and ligament repairs.
Our orthopaedic services begin with a thorough assessment of your pet’s problem (including X-rays if required). Our veterinarians will then discuss with you the treatment options for your pet’s condition.
Cowra Veterinary Centre has the expertise and specialist equipment necessary to perform the following orthopaedic surgeries:
Cranial cruciate ligament repair
Luxating patella repair
Amputations for severe injuries
Fracture repair (casting)
More complicated orthopaedic cases, such as pinning or plating fractures or spinal surgery, will need to be referred to a specialist veterinary orthopaedic surgeon in order for your pet to receive the best possible veterinary orthopaedic care.
