Should your pet develop any issues with their bones, skeleton or joints, our highly experienced team is able to offer a comprehensive range of orthopaedic procedures.

Orthopaedics covers everything to do with the skeleton and soft tissue structures, including ligaments and tendons. Your pet may need urgent intervention as part of emergency care, treatment to repair a long-standing problem, or could benefit from preventative measures.

Our diagnostic tools, including CT scans, X-ray and ultrasound, help our team reach a more accurate and swifter diagnosis. Surgical procedures are then performed at one of our hospital centres in Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket or Ipswich, by experienced surgeons with advanced training in the field of orthopaedics.

We perform many orthopaedic surgeries every year on small animals and are able to offer a wide range of procedures to our patients and also take in referral cases.

Our experienced team are happy to spend time fully discussing the options available with you. We’ll go through a treatment plan and answer any questions you may have prior to your animal undergoing the surgery. We’ll also provide a thorough aftercare plan, which can include medications and other recommended treatments such as physiotherapy or hydrotherapy, so that your pet can achieve the best outcome following their surgery.
