Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic Surgeries

We have an amazing traveling surgery, Dr. Caleb Vaughan, who comes to our clinic to perform certain orthopedic surgeries: 

  • Luxating Patella Repairs
  • TPLOs (Tibial-Plateau-Leveling-Osteotomies)
  • FHOs (Femoral Head Ostectomies)

With every orthopedic surgery, pre-operative bloodwork is done the week before to make sure your pet is healthy enough to go under anesthesia. The day of, they are given an anti-nausea medication and peri-operative antibiotics. An IV catheter is placed and a multi-modal anesthetic drug approach is taken to provide the safest and smoothest possible anesthesia for them. They are also typically kept on a CRI (constant rate infusion) pain drip during and after surgery. We have dedicated team members that monitor your pet the entire time from beginning to completely awake and monitor multiple health parameters while they are under anesthesia.
