Orthopedic Surgery

At University Animal Hospital our doctors have special interests in orthopedics and are able to provide most surgical and diagnostic treatments without the need for a board certified specialist. If our doctors feel that the surgery required is beyond their expertise they will refer you to a board certified specialist, but you can always rely on University Animal Hospital to provide post-operative care such as pain management and x-rays.

Orthopedic services and surgery offered at University Animal Hospital includes:

Hip Dysplasia X-rays
Available with most common anesthetic procedures, a hip x-ray will check for possible problems. This is especially important for large breed dogs predisposed to hip dysplasia such as Labradors and German Shepherds.

OFA X-rays
For owners looking to certify their pet’s hips with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, we offer OFA radiographs. This procedure is performed on an adult dog under anesthesia. OFA certification is often a requirement in order to breed and sell certain breeds of AKC registered dogs.

Surgical Procedures
We offer the following orthopedic surgeries – consultations are required and costs of the surgery will be given at the time of the consultation.

  • Fracture Repair – Bone Pinning and Bone Plating
  • Luxating Patella
  • Torn ACL
  • TPLO
  • Amputations
