What is Veterinary Orthopaedics?

Orthopaedics is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders related to the musculoskeletal system. In the context of veterinary medicine, orthopaedics focuses on addressing conditions affecting the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles of animals.

Pet Orthopaedic Surgery

When conservative treatments are not sufficient, orthopaedic surgery may be necessary to address musculoskeletal conditions in pets. Our experienced surgeons at London Vet Specialists, are skilled in performing various orthopaedic veterinary procedures, ranging from fracture repairs to joint replacements, with the utmost precision and care.

Cat Bones and Joints

Cats can experience a range of orthopaedic issues, including fractures, luxating patella’s, and hip dysplasia. Our team of orthopaedic veterinary specialists understands the unique anatomy and challenges associated with feline orthopaedics. We provide comprehensive evaluations, accurate diagnoses, and tailored treatment plans to help improve your cat's mobility and overall quality of life.
