When your dog needs orthopedic surgery the idea of going to another veterinary facility can be upsetting. As a pet owner you build a relationship with your vet and you know your veterinary clinic and having to begin that process again at one of the most trying times in your pet’s life can be hard.
Here at Leesville Animal Hospital we not only have vets on staff who are fully trained in various orthopedic surgeries but we also have veterinarians on call who come to our clinic to perform surgeries for our clients. One of the reasons why this is so important to us is not only for your comfort but for the comfort of your pet. Just like you get nervous at the thought of taking your dog to a new location, so too does your dog! By having your dog undergo their orthopedic surgery at Leesville Animal Hospital you help to add a layer of comfort and familiarity to make the process less stressful for you both.
Certainly there are incidences where we prefer to have your pet taken to another facility, for example in emergency surgery cases or in the case of specialized surgery where we feel another hospital is better equip to handle your case. Overall however, here at Leesville Animal Hospital orthopedic surgery is something we work with on a regular basis!
