Orthopedic Services for Pets

Even if your furry friend spends most of their days lounging on your couch or sunbathing by their favourite window, their bones and joints will go through lots of wear and tear over the years. This is why orthopedic problems are common among dogs, cats and other pets. With our experienced veterinarians and modern facilities, we can get your pet moving around again after any injury, diagnosis or operation. Call us at 647.350.6666 to learn more about our orthopedic services.

Are orthopedic problems common in pets?

Yes. Issues can develop from injuries, old age or genetics – as in your pet can be born with a certain heath condition. Sporting pets, hunting pets, those who participate in dog shows, those who help around the farm, and even just regular, suburban pets can all have bone health issues throughout their life.

What are common orthopedic conditions in pets?

Arthritis, hip/elbow dysplasia, cruciate ligament tears, luxating patellas and fractures are some of the most common problems we treat in our canine and feline patients.

How are orthopedic problems treated in pets?

Treatment will vary based on the type of condition, severity, comorbidities, as well as your pet’s age/breed/species. Exercise regimens, diet changes, medications, rehabilitation and surgery can all be used to treat orthopedic issues.
