Orthopedics

Pet Surgery and Orthopedic Services from Creekside Animal Hospital and Wellness Center

Sometimes, when pets get hurt, they may require surgical repair. Like people, there are lots of different surgical fields that someone may need to rely on for pet surgery. One example is orthopedics. For those who might not know, this is an area of surgery that focuses on helping to treat injuries involving the bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. At Creekside Animal Hospital and Wellness Center, we are here to make sure that everyone in the Lafayette & West Lafayette areas has access to a trained pet surgeon who can handle orthopedic operations.

Examples of Injuries Treated by Pet Orthopedics

There are a number of common injuries that can be treated by someone who works in pet orthopedics. One of the most common is a broken bone. While not every broken bone is going to require surgery, some are going to be displaced from their normal anatomic location. These bones will need to be shifted back into the proper place in the operating room.

Someone who specializes in pet orthopedics can also handle ligament tears, such as those involving the ACL. A trained surgeon is able to fashion a new ligament for the pet, restoring both flexibility and range of motion to the injured body part.

Finally, a pet orthopedic surgeon can also handle muscle and tendon tears. These injuries often require surgical repair to restore the muscle or tendon's strength.

When Happens on the Day of Pet Surgery

On the day of a pet's surgery, the animal will be taken back to the operating room to be prepped for anesthesia. This is done to make sure the animal stays still while also avoiding any discomfort. Then, the operation is carried out. Once the procedure is done, the animal will be taken from the operating room to the recovery area. The pet will then wake up in a comfortable setting in a gradual manner.

    Natalie F.
  • "This was our first time to visit Creekside. Do to the Corona Virus we needed to pull into the parking lot and call to let them know we were there. To my surprise the Doctor came to the car in person. I must say that I had a very good impression of her. I was very satisfied with the service we received there. After she completed the exam she called us to explain the results of the exam and answer any questions we had. At this time I would recommend them highly."
    Robert J.
  • "We have been coming to Creekside for 4 years now. I could not imagine going anywhere else! They have always been very patient with all of our questions & they were all very supportive when our dogs helped themselves to a bag of chocolate. I always know that when I have to leave our furbabies at Creekside for the day that will be well taken care of."
