Orthopedic Services for Pets

Living with constant pain causes great discomfort to your pet. Pets suffering from orthopedic conditions may have a low quality of life if they don’t receive treatment. At Pinnacle Animal Hospital our team is experienced and skilled in treating orthopedic issues.

What are signs of an orthopedic condition in my pet?

Your cherished pet’s natural instinct is to hide their pain. By the time it becomes visible they are experiencing pain, their condition may have become more advanced. This is why we urge you to contact your veterinarian when you see the signs. Commons signs may include:

  • Weight loss
  • Limping
  • Difficulty going up and down the stairs
  • Hesitant to jump or run

    If you’re concerned your pet is experiencing pain due to an orthopedic condition, reach out to us at 613.433.3100.

    What are common orthopedic conditions in pets?

    Pets experience orthopedic issues due to different reasons such as weight, age, breed, injury or size. Examples of common orthopedic conditions include torn ligaments, fractures, disc disease, arthritis and hip dysplasia.

    How are orthopedic conditions treated in pets?

    To treat orthopedic conditions our team may recommend surgery, acupuncture, oral medications or exercises. The treatment that is recommended for your pet is dependent on their condition.
