Project Description

To get them back on their paws…

Orthopedic surgeries are one of the most common operations performed by veterinarians. One might think that traumatic accidents account for this situation, however the leading cause is in fact due to genetic disorders. The most commonly known inherited joint disorder is hip dysplasia. Knee problems requiring surgery are also commonly seen in many breeds of dogs. The condition most frequently encountered in small breeds is the patellar luxation (dislocation of the knee-cap), while larger dogs will be more susceptable to problems associated with anterior cruciate ligament (such as traumatic ligament ruptures often suffered by hockey and football players ).
