Orthopedics at Apple Tree Cove Animal Hospital
Apple Tree Cove Animal Hospital is fully equipped to perform most common orthopedic procedures including fracture repairs, joint surgery, bone biopsies, etc. We also can offer an in-hospital referral with a board-certified veterinary surgeon to perform complicated orthopedic surgeries such as TPLO surgery to correct damaged cruciate ligaments, eliminating the need to send our patients over to Seattle for these procedures.
As with our soft tissue surgeries, pain management is an integral part of the pre, intra and post-operative periods. Most orthopedic patients walk out of our hospital 1 - 2 days after surgery.
TPLO Cruciate Repair Surgery
We have an excellent pain management program in place to ensure your pet's comfort before, during and after the procedure.
