Injuries

Wound Management

Wound care in veterinary medicine is essential to the duration and extent of a pet’s recovery from surgery or traumatic injury.

Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic injuries affect the bones, joints, or muscles, and can range from a minor inconvenience to debilitating. Orthopedic conditions that are frequently seen in canines include cruciate ligament tears, dysplasia of the hips or elbow, and arthritis.

Corneal Ulceration and Irritation

A corneal ulcer is an eye infection that causes an open sore on the cornea. The most common symptoms of a corneal ulcer are squinting, redness, and ocular discharge.

Dental Fractures

Tooth fractures are very common in dogs and can be caused by external trauma or from chewing on hard objects such as antlers, bones, or other hard chew toys.

Trauma

Trauma can mean that your pet has experienced a physical injury or wound that was caused by violence or an external source. This can include but is not limited to fractures, cuts, bruises, head injuries, internal organ injuries, and respiratory problems.
