Vetconsult Clinic offers its clients diagnostics and treatment of various types of skeletal and muscular disorders – bone fractures, dysplasia, dislocations, torn ligaments, etc. Patients often suffer from bone and joint deformities, fractures, nerve disorders and muscle injuries, whether congenital or often caused by an accident. In many cases, fractures in dogs and cats are most often caused by falling, jumping, biting, hitting or aggressive human intervention.

The first and most important step when detecting an injury to your pet is to minimize the movement of the affected leg or injured area and contact the clinic so that we can be ready to accept you as an emergency.

The clinic has a digital X-ray machine, which allows for quick and precise diagnostics, and hence the correct orthopedic intervention by a specialist – orthopedist.

Digital X-ray provides more detail and improves the diagnostic value of the examination. The high image quality helps the doctor to increase the number of diagnosed conditions in patients.

In case of spinal injuries, it is necessary to examine the integrity and conductivity of the spinal canal by myelography. The method involves injecting a contrast agent into the spinal canal and a concomitant X-ray image which serves to assess the severity of the injury.

Depending on the type of fracture, the time of injury and the age of the pet, the most appropriate method is chosen:

  • Anesthesia;
  • External fixation according to the patient’s needs;
  • Stabilization with plate and screws;
  • Concomitant antibiotic, analgesic (pain relieving) and anti-inflammatory therapy;
