Broken bones are often more challenging for pets because they don't understand where the pain and mobility issues are coming from, and they can often make fractures worse by trying to go about their daily lives. That is why fracture repair is an important procedure that can help your pet live a healthier, happier life.
Generally a fracture repair involves the veterinarian moving the fractured piece of bone back into place so that it may heal properly. Sometimes more complicated measures need to be taken for badly broken bones, and anesthetic may be required.
It is a terrible feeling to know that your pet is in pain from a broken bone, especially because there is little you can do as a pet owner outside of seeking veterinary care. If you suspect your pet has a fracture, please don't hesitate to call us today.
