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.
