Just as humans sometimes need the help of an orthopedic surgeon, our animal companions can sometimes benefit from pet orthopedics. Our veterinarian in Overland Park performs pet orthopedics and pet orthopedic surgery to correct problems affecting your pet’s bones, joints, connective tissue or muscles.
Pet orthopedics and pet orthopedic surgery are two types of care provided to treat conditions affecting bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. These services benefit pets that suffer from degenerative conditions, injuries from traumatic accidents, and congenital problems associated with the breed of your pet.
Hip dysplasia, torn cruciate ligaments, patellar luxations, and disc problems are common in dogs. Fractured bones and arthritis are common orthopedic problems in cats.
Orthopedic problems may be acute with a sudden onset, as in the case of a broken leg, or chronic and progressive. Degenerative joint conditions, such as arthritis, can cause chronic and long-lasting pain.
Some orthopedic conditions require immediate treatment. Other conditions, such as hip dysplasia, appear at a young age but require no treatment until your dog is older. Some conditions cause an increasing amount of pain or dysfunction as time goes by.
Our Overland Park veterinarian can help you determine which type of treatment is best and when to start that treatment. In some cases, pet orthopedic surgery is necessary.
Our veterinarian in Overland Park may recommend one type of orthopedic surgery for your pet over another, depending on the age of your animal companion.
Treatment always starts with a comprehensive evaluation of the problem. This evaluation includes physical examination, observations of the animal walking or running, and imaging with x-rays.
Our Overland Park pet surgeon will tell you what to expect, depending on the type of orthopedic surgery your pet might need, including details on how long you can expect your animal companion to stay with us. We will also provide you with instructions on how to care for your pet after orthopedic pet surgery, so that you can help us ensure the best outcome possible.
If your pet has an orthopedic problem that affects the bones, joints, connective tissues or muscles, make an appointment with our Overland Park animal hospital. Blue Valley Animal Hospital provides the pet orthopedics your animal companion needs to stay comfortable and active. Our veterinary animal hospital is conveniently located at 16200 Metcalf Ave in Overland Park, KS. Make an appointment for your pet today by contacting 913-681-2818.
