FAQs

How to tell if my dog has a dislocated/fractured leg?

Look for any lameness, difficulty bearing weight on one leg, changes in your pet's walk or behavior. If you notice any of these signs, it is essential to have your pet undergo a veterinary orthopedic evaluation to identify a dislocation/fracture and determine the appropriate treatment.

Treatment may include weight management, pain medications, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery. A veterinarian specializing in orthopedics will evaluate the severity of the dysplasia and recommend a personalized treatment plan to improve the pet's quality of life.

Recovery time varies depending on the type of surgery and the specific condition of the animal. It can vary from weeks to months. Your veterinarian will provide a detailed timetable and guidelines for post-operative care which may include activity limitations and rehabilitation therapy.

Whether orthopedic surgery can be avoided through physiotherapy or rehabilitation will depend on the specific nature of the pet's orthopedic condition. In some cases, physical therapy and rehabilitation can help strengthen the affected muscles, improve mobility and reduce discomfort, thus avoiding the need for surgery. However, it is essential to consult a veterinarian specializing in orthopedics to evaluate the animal's condition and determine the most suitable approach to its treatment.
