Lameness, arthritis and other orthopaedic conditions

Lameness can be mild to severe, due to an acute injury of the soft tissues, bones or joints, or due to age-related wear and tear. Canberra Mobile Vets can diagnose lamenesses in your pet at your home, provide appropriate pain relief, and devise a treatment plan specific to your pet.

In certain cases, Dr Charles Webb may advise orthopaedic surgery after taking radiographs. Examples of orthopaedic surgeries include:

  • Cranial cruciate ligament repair

  • Fracture (broken bone) repair

  • Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases

Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, will need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
