Orthopedic Surgery for Dogs and Cats in Logan Utah
Orthopedic Surgery is a procedure that's actually used to repair the bone or joint of your pet. This is often used to help an animal that's fractured a bone or is suffering from congenital joint disease and puts them on the road to a life that's once again healthy and happy. While the cost of this operation isn't cheap, and the road to full recovery can be a long one, it is worth it to see your beloved animal back to their energetic and playful self.
Our doctors are specially trained to handle these procedures and use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. Tools and materials such as pins, screws, bone plates, casts, and even artificial joints are used to correct any problems. Heavy sedation and anesthesia are also required for these operations as they can take several hours to complete, and we'll ensure that extensive blood work and health testing is performed beforehand. This ensures that our patients are in good health and ready.

After this, they'll be limited to lighter movements and exercise, and may even need to participate in specialized physical therapy to finish the healing process. Overall, you can expect recovery to take anywhere from four to six months!
