Just like human beings, pets also experience orthopedic problems, especially if they are active. If they are not active, it may be because your pet is in pain or injured, and they are unable to communicate it. Orthopedic issues in pets include joint pain, osteoarthritis, muscle injuries, and bone issues. They usually occur due to injuries or accidents. In other cases, they can be due to genetic predisposition to the disorder.
When your pet continues to show signs of pain after an injury, it should not be ignored. Their initial injury could result in underlying issues that you, as their owner, cannot diagnose on your own and will need the advice of a veterinarian. Our team of veterinary professionals at Blue Lake Animal Hospital is prepared to help you and your pet with any orthopedic problems. While many orthopedic problems can be easily remedied using medications and joint supplements, there are certain cases where only surgical intervention can help. At Blue Lake Animal Hospital, we are experienced in orthopedic surgery, and we ensure our patients are well taken care of.
Various orthopedic problems can call for surgical operations in your pets. We recommend arranging an appointment with your vet as soon as you notice signs of orthopedic issues with your companion. You can watch for apparent symptoms such as difficulty jumping, reduced movements, swaying gaits, limping, obvious pain, etc.
If you believe your pet may be dealing with problems that may need veterinary attention, please contact our office as soon as possible to schedule an appointment at our clinic. Below are a few common conditions that may require orthopedic surgery:

Everyone is always helpful and nice. Glad we switched veterinarians.
Dr. Heather always takes the best care of our animals. Thank you!
Very friendly team and thoroughly enjoyed our first welcome appointment with our new puppy!
My pet got attacked and needed help right away - Blue Lake fit us in, performed surgery and Dr. Will kept me apprised the whole time. When there were complications, they again fit us in right away and helped. Great vet office.
We live in Lansing and travel to the clinic for all of our dogs. Dr. Heather is so knowledgeable and actually gave us a more precise date on when our dog should have a c-section. If we would have gone off the previous advice from a different vet…
I can't say enough good about Blue Lake. My dog Buster is 15 years old and has some expected health issues, but they are always helpful with my pet and his needs.
This is a very caring place to bring your pet.
We have a reptile that needed some immediate care. The staff was able to get us an appointment within a couple of days. We received very good care for our reptile friend and will definitely use them again for any of our exotic pets.
Very courteous staff.
