Orthopedic Dog and Cat Surgery in Altadena, CA

Orthopedic Dog and Cat Surgery in Altadena

If your pet has an injury or chronic condition involving their bones, joints, ligaments or muscles, they could benefit from orthopedic dog and cat surgery. At Altadena Pet Hospital, we are qualified to treat pets for a variety of orthopedic conditions. Due to our comprehensive surgical capabilities, we can see patients for conditions that might otherwise require a referral to another hospital.

In addition to being painful, orthopedic issues can be severely debilitating. Together, these problems can diminish your pet's well-being and even shorten their lifespan. With orthopedic surgery, we can give them a second chance at a happier, healthier life.

Conditions We Can Treat With Orthopedic Surgery

Dr. Sahi and his staff can correct a variety of issues with orthopedic surgery, including:

  • Bone injuries
  • Broken/fractured bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Congenital skeletal problems

Before going forward with surgery, your veterinarian will need to diagnose and evaluate your pet's condition. This also involves reviewing your pet's complete medical history. We need to consider their lifestyle, activity level, age, breed and  size. Furthermore, we will take time to review your pet's X-ray images (if X-rays were recommended) to study the area of injury.

Following surgery, your veterinarian will provide you with strict instructions for keeping your pet calm, contained and pain-free during their recovery. We also encourage communication with our animal hospital if you have questions or concerns during this period.
