Cruciate disease causes the weakening and eventual rupture of a ligament in your pet’s knee.
To diagnose and plan the best treatment, we use x-rays.
The treatment is a circular cut and rotation to your pet’s shin bone to remove tension on the cruciate ligament.
Your pet will require at least six weeks of confinement to a pen or crate after surgery while the bone heals, combined with controlled lead-only walks and physiotherapy.
Most pets achieve complete resolution of lameness and unrestricted exercise within a few months of surgery without pain relief. Arthritis can progress in the long term.
While your pet is in our expert care, the clinically-proven Adaptil calming pheromone collar is used to reduce stress.
Our experienced surgical team performs each surgery precisely, calmly and quietly.
After surgery, your pet wakes up in a dedicated temperature-controlled warming room.
During anaesthesia recovery, our lovely surgical nurse sits with your pet so they are not alone.
After surgery, a photo of your pet is texted to you so you can see all is well.
Typically used by athletes after injury, Game Ready® is a healing system we use to reduce swelling and promote post-operative recovery.
All our patients go home with multimodal pain relief on the same day of surgery. This avoids separation anxiety and expensive after-hours care.
Four physio sessions are included in each orthopaedic package to restore mobility quickly.
Every physio session includes Class IV Laser Therapy.
