What is orthopedic surgery for pets?
Orthopedic surgery is used to address any concerns in your pet’s muscles and bones. If your pet breaks or fractures a bone, tears a ligament, or is diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis then your veterinarian will most likely recommend orthopedic surgery to improve their mobility and get them on the path to good health.
What is soft-tissue surgery for pets?
These procedures are used to treat anomalies in your pet’s internal organs (heart, lungs, etc.), skin and muscles. For example, if your pet develops a cyst or mass, then soft-tissue surgery will be performed to remove that growth.
What should I do after my pet’s orthopedic surgery?
Rest assured that your veterinarian will explain to you all of the post-op measures you need to take and steps you need to follow for your pet’s specific case. That being said, there are some general steps that most pet parents need to remember upon taking their pet home from the hospital after their surgery.
