Dr. Harrison is a board certified specialist in veterinary orthopedic surgery, for dogs and cats. Services offered are knee reconstruction, ligament repair, patellar (knee cap) stabilization, fracture treatment, spinal surgery, joint surgery, total hip replacement, bone disease diagnosis, lameness examinations and others. At our clinic, we take pride in providing your pets with safe and effective surgery. We love pets and treat all of our patients as if they were our own.
The role of the orthopedist today is to determine the cause of lameness and to offer advice for its treatment. Solutions may require medication, splints, exercise modification or surgery. Surgery is not always needed, but if it is, be assured that it is usually safe and effective.
Most orthopedic procedures can be done for $500 to $2,500 plus the cost of the metal implant (if any), surgical supplies, anesthesia and technician time. There is no charge for follow up visits and aftercare. Check, MasterCard and Visa are the preferred methods of payment.
Most appointments are made in mornings so that, if surgery is needed, it can be done the same afternoon. Overnight care is available, but most procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis.
Please do not feed your pet the morning of your appointment and bring available x-rays or diagnostic tests. This will expedite service and minimize costs. These materials will be returned with a letter detailing the diagnosis and surgical procedure.
Your veterinarian should expect a call from the staff following surgery.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
