Depending on your pet's medical concerns, surgery may be the best course of action to keep them healthy. There are a variety of reasons why your pet may need surgery, such as:
Blockages: If your pet swallows something that they shouldn't and develops a blockage, they may require surgery to remove it.
Cancer: While not necessary for all types of cancer, surgery may be beneficial for the removal of some or all of your pet's cancerous tumors.
Fracture Repairs: Your pet may need surgery to repair a ligament or bone fracture. Common procedures are:
Carpal and Tarsus Arthrodesis - procedures designed to restore limb function and relieve pain.
TPLO Surgery: a procedure that treats the ligament rupture in an animal’s knee joints. This surgery is most common amongst orthopedic surgical procedures, producing an effective long-term solution for the injury.
Surgery to repair Osteochondritis Dissecans: a joint disease that can affect the pet’s shoulders, elbows and knees.
