Orthopedic Surgery - Silver Lake
Our four-legged furry friends cannot verbally communicate when they are in pain. As humans, we groan, moan, scream, and cry when in distress. However, your adorable pets are not in a position to clearly express themselves. It is up to you to be proactive and watch out for the first cry for help.

Orthopedic Assistance and Care for Your Pets
At Affordable Animal Hospital Silver Lake, we understand and empathize with you when your pets are in pain. We understand the urgency you feel to get your beloved pet out of pain. This is why we believe that your pets deserve and require the same amount of love, affection, support, and care as any other member of your family. Especially when it comes to providing your pets orthopedic medical support. By building an environment of security and compassion, we strive to restore your pet’s health.
Breaking a bone is a harrowing experience. The pain felt is unimaginable. A damaged, fractured, or completely broken bone caused due to trauma takes months to repair. Likewise, the process of repairing or setting a bone back is not a breeze either.
Congenital conditions affecting your pet’s joints are painful to live with too. Many times, disjointed and fractured bones require surgical intervention. Orthopedic surgery for your pets also tackles medical issues in tendons, ligaments, cartilages, muscles, and soft tissues.
Signs and Symptoms to Watch for in Your Pets
At Affordable Animal Hospital Silver Lake, we provide the best orthopedic veterinary care all of Silver Lake has to offer. Specializing in both invasive and non-invasive orthopedic surgeries, the nature of the surgery that your pet needs to undergo depends on their injury.
It is difficult to ascertain correctly when your pets are in need of medical care. Our furry friends cannot talk to us. However, as a caring and loving pet parent, you need to be proactive and watch out for signs and symptoms. It is recommended that you reach out for medical care for your pets as soon as you notice some or many of these symptoms:
- Reduced or negligible mobility
- Difficulty walking
- Loss of agility
- Reluctance for social interaction
- Excessive drowsiness
- Continued anxious growling in dogs
- Hissing in cats
- Sudden weight loss
- Sudden excessive aggression
- Reduced appetite
- Aversion to water
What Causes the Need for Orthopedic Care in Pets?
As humans, when we fall ill, we make sure to understand why we fell ill so that we can prevent it from happening again. You should practice the same level of proactiveness when it comes to your pets. Here are a few reasons why your pet is in need of orthopedic care:
• Trauma to muscles causing ligament tears.
• Trauma to bones causing fractured, broken, or dislocated bones.
• Infection in the skeletal system due to invasive microorganisms.
• Weak and sore bones occurring as a side effect of cancer or an immune disorder.
• Arthritis and wear and tear of muscles due to old age.
