Here at Mercy Animal Hospital, we are dedicated to providing the very best orthopedic care for our patients.
Not many veterinarians are willing and able to complete orthopedic surgeries since they are more complex and difficult to perform. Because of this, we are happy to be able to provide orthopedic veterinary services to our patients. We also are happy to assist other veterinarians by performing surgery to all pets in Edmonton, Alberta and our surrounding communities.
Our veterinarians are here to treat the bones, joints, and spine of our patients. Our goal is to help them become more mobile again. To achieve our goal, we are able to do many common orthopedic surgeries including cruciate repairs, complex bone fractures, and arthroscopic procedures. Our veterinarians are constantly learning new skills so that they can give your pet the highest quality of veterinary care. We are always working hard to decrease your pet’s recovery time. We want him or her to be able to move around as soon as possible.
Orthopedic surgery is more than your typical surgeries (like spays and neuters). We take great care during surgery and afterwards too!
Our staff wants to make sure that you know and understand what you and your pet will be going through. We will explain all about the surgery and the aftercare required of you. We will also be sure to talk about the recovery and what we are expecting from your pet.
While your pet is staying with us, we will do everything that we can to take care of your pet. We monitor every pet in our hospital closely during anesthesia and surgery. We take great care when your pet is waking up from anesthesia. We will do everything that we can so that your pet’s surgery is a huge success. Part of that is watching your pet as he or she heals. We require follow up appointments so that we can monitor his or her progress.
Because we all love animals, we know how stressful it can be when your pet has surgery. This is why we spend so much time explaining the surgery and aftercare to you. We want you to know the surgery, the risks, and what we are expecting as your pet heals. We will answer any questions you have – either before, during, or after surgery. We are only a phone call away if you have any questions once you and your pet are home.
Feel free to contact us today at 780-406-1400 if you have any questions about surgery or would like to schedule an appointment.
