Common orthopedic surgeries requested here at Lakeshore Veterinary Hospital are related to torn or partially torn cruciate ligaments in the dog. This ligament is similar to the ACL ligament in humans. Other times our pets may have bone fractures requiring immediate intervention. Our veterinarians are able to provide consultations and treatment plans, even on an emergency basis, in order to get your pet the best clinical outcome possible.
In cases where your pet may require a specialist, we are proud to partner with Dr. Derek Kopecky and Louisiana Mobile Veterinary Services to provide advanced orthopedic surgeries within our hospital. In the event of the most extreme orthopedic emergencies, we have partnered with specialty hospitals in and surrounding Mandeville to get your pet the fastest referral possible. If your pet needs an orthopedic surgery, please contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation.
