Orthopedic medicine is a branch of medicine concerning the musculoskeletal system (muscles and bones).
Yes! Similar to how humans have multiple joints and bones to build up your skeleton, your pet has the same. Your pet, though built differently, can still get similar joint and muscle problems, for example, a torn cruciate ligament or a luxated patella.
An orthopedic procedure can be anything to do with bones or muscles. So that could be hip and joint problems as well as fractures and amputations. Advanced: Some pets with torn cruciate ligaments, luxating patellas, fractures, cancer and hip dysplasia are all possible candidates for orthopedic surgery.
