Minor Orthopedic Surgery

Minor Orthopedic Surgery

At Bonner Springs Animal Care Center, we strive to provide our patients with comprehensive veterinary care. Our veterinarian will always recommend the least-invasive treatment option with the fewest risks that will still be effective for our patients. However, veterinary surgery is sometimes the best treatment option available for a pet when the benefits outweigh any potential risks.

What Is Orthopedic Surgery?

Orthopedic surgery includes a variety of procedures that are intended to address, treat, and repair injuries and/or genetic, degenerative, or disease-related problems with the musculoskeletal system which includes a pet’s bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Orthopedic surgery is often recommended as the best treatment option to restore a pet’s mobility, correct deformities and injuries, and to mitigate musculoskeletal pain.

During our surgical procedures, we use only the highest quality medications and surgical tools. Additionally, we’ll monitor your pet’s vital signs continuously to ensure a successful, pain-free procedure and swift recovery.

What to Expect When Your Pet Needs Surgery

If your pet has an upcoming surgical procedure scheduled, we’ll be here to provide you with a thorough explanation of your pet’s procedure and answer any questions you might have. Before your pet’s surgery, we will run a blood test with our in-house diagnostic lab to evaluate your pet’s organ function and ensure he or she is healthy enough to be sedated with general anesthesia and undergo the procedure at-hand.
Additionally, we’ll provide you with complete instructions for pre-operative and post-operative care. This might include information on restricting food and water prior to your pet’s appointment, administering medications, caring for your pet’s incision site, pain management, activity restriction, and follow-up veterinary examinations to monitor recovery with x-rays and physical examination.
