Road Traffic accidents involving dogs and cats are all too common, and frequently pets require surgery to repair fractured bones, replace dislocated joints and repair/ replace damaged ligaments and tendons. Orthopaedic surgery is also carried out on dogs and cats with joint problems– the most common are: Ruptured Cruciate Ligaments in the knee joint, Hip & Elbow Dysplasia & Osteochrondrosis (sometimes called OCD)- these are diseases which develop during the dog’s growth– usually large breeds like labs, boxers and Great danes. Spinal Surgery is a specialist part of orthopaedics. It involves delicate surgery around the main nerve which carries all the information from the brain to the legs, bladder etc– called the spinal cord.
