Orthopedic Consultation for Older Dogs and Cats
Older animals often experience a decline in orthopedic health, so it is important to create a treatment plan that addresses your pet’s mobility and quality of life. Based on our examination, our veterinarians will make appropriate recommendations, including pain management. If you have concerns about your pet’s quality of life, we can also provide Quality-of-Life Consultation, guidance, and end-of-life care. We may also recommend further testing or refer you to a board-certified veterinary orthopedic specialist or surgeon (for an additional cost).
