Orthopaedic and Advanced surgery
Black Rock Animal Hospital is able to offer an extensive range of surgery on site.
Orthopaedic surgery is unfortunately commonly required in dogs. The most common surgery is correction of a ruptured cruciate ligament. We believe that the best surgical option for larger dogs is a TPLO – Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomy and smaller dogs a De Angelus suture. It is our preference for these procedures to be performed by an experienced orthopaedic surgeon. So we have a visiting surgeon who comes to the clinic to perform these surgeries and other less common orthopaedic procedures. We also offer referral if required.
Soft tissue surgery is performed confidently by our experienced veterinarians.
Any patient that requires surgery will have a pre-surgery consultation to discuss all options available. We aim to cater for all situations, taking into account most importantly the patient but also you as the owner and any concerns you may have regarding the procedure and your pets’ recovery.
Please contact us at the clinic to make an appointment if you would like to discuss a particular procedure.
