It is an unfortunate reality that any pet—including yours—can be adversely affected by soft tissue conditions. Other times, they might suffer from damage or wear and tear on important limbs and tendons, such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), that prevent them from completing normally enjoyable activities, such as playing and running. When these situations arise, it is best for the health and wellbeing of your animal to receive vital procedures that can drastically improve their welfare and happiness.
At Adobe Veterinary Clinic, we have the ability to perform these types of crucially important orthopedic and soft tissue procedures, using the latest technology and techniques. Read on to learn more about what these procedures can do to help your pet!
Soft tissue conditions tend to be related to the gastrointestinal, urogenital, respiratory, or cardiothoracic systems, in addition to the animal’s ears, nose, or throat. When these complex regions of your pet’s body become afflicted with illness, our experienced veterinary surgeons can step in and perform procedures such as reproductive surgery, thoracic surgery, abdominal surgery, wound care, reconstructive surgery, intestinal or stomach surgery, oncological (cancer) surgery, or surgeries related to the head, neck, or upper airway systems.
Orthopedic procedures can include repairs made to the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL), which is one of the main structures of a dog’s knee joint that prevents their knee from slipping and keeps their tibia and femur properly aligned, stabilizing the structure of the joint. Luxated patellas (kneecaps) are also a problematic condition for animals that requires treatment. After all, your pet can’t run and play like they were born to do if they have issues with the most critical limbs and joints in their body used for such activities. At Adobe Veterinary Clinic, these operations are performed in house by Dr. Moody.
Not only can these procedures dramatically improve your pet’s quality of life, but they can also be performed as a preventative measure to combat future conditions that may arise out of lifestyle or congenital conditions, particularly those associated with their breed.
