Here at Sunny Hills Veterinary Hospital, we are dedicated to providing the very best orthopedic care for our patients.

Orthopedic Procedures

Our skilled veterinarians are here to treat the bones, joints, and spine of our patients.

Not many veterinarians are willing and able to complete orthopedic surgeries since they are more complex and difficult to perform. We are proud to be able to provide orthopedic veterinary services to our patients. We also are happy to assist other veterinarians by providing orthopedic surgery to all pets in La Habra, CA and our surrounding communities.

Our Goals

  • Our goal is to help your pet 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 your pet to be able to move around as soon as possible.

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery involves more than your typical soft tissue surgeries (like spays and neuters). We take great care of your pet during surgery and recovery too!

Here at Sunny Hills Veterinary Hospital, we offer many types of surgeries, including:

  • TPLO Procedures: Tibial Plateau Leveloing Osteormy (TPLO ) – a surgery for cranial cruciate ligament injury aimed at changing the biomechanics of the stifle (knee). Which leads to better resumption of normal activities than typically is seen with other surgeries for cranial cruciate ligament rupture.
  • Bone surgery – treating broken bones in pets is different that treating a broken limb in humans. We offer bone surgery to fix your pet’s broken bones in the places where healing occurs.
  • Limb and Tail Amputation: Traumatic injuries to a pet’s tail or limb may necessitate the removal of that appendage. Injuries from automobiles, infections, cancer, and other diseases are all conditions that could lead toa pet’s limb being amputated. Amputation is done either to save a pet’s life or to easy pain brought on by disease or injury. Amputation procedures are a difficult decision for pet owners and our veterinarians will talk to clients about how your pet will cope with amputation. Limb and tail amputations are an involved, but usually not complicated, surgical procedure.

Our staff wants to make sure that you know and understand what you and your pet will be experiencing. We will explain all about the surgery and the aftercare required of you. We will also be sure to talk about your pet’s 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 understand the surgery, the risks, and what to expect as your pet heals. We will answer any questions you have – 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 (714) 526-4694 if you have any questions about surgery or would like to schedule an appointment.
