Bone & Joint Problems


Just like humans, pets can experience problems with their bones, joints and ligaments, either from injury, acute or chronic medical condition or simply old age. These issues can cause a number of unpleasant symptoms, from minor discomfort and mobility issues to intense pain. The good news is, with the right treatment plan, these symptoms can be dramatically reduced or even eliminated altogether. At Omaha Animal Medical Group, our staff is experienced in diagnosing and treating a wide range of orthopedic issues. We can help your pet enjoy a happier, more comfortable life.

Whether your pet is suffering from a broken bone, degenerative disease, arthritis or something else, we’re prepared to get to the bottom of the problem. Our hospital is outfitted with modern equipment which we can use to quickly and accurately diagnose orthopedic issues. With diagnosis in hand, we will then get right to work developing a treatment strategy that we feel will help achieve the best possible results. This may range from physical therapy or medication to orthopedic surgery. Our approach will be based entirely on your pet’s unique needs.

Not sure if your pet could use an orthopedic evaluation? Some of the tell-tale signs and symptoms associated with joint, bone and ligament problems include:

  • Swollen or tender joints
  • Limping or favoring one or more legs
  • Stiffness when getting up
  • Difficulty getting around (climbing stairs, jumping, playing, running, etc.)
  • Whimpering, whining or crying in pain when touched or while moving

If you’ve noticed any of these things, it’s time to schedule a professional orthopedic exam. The sooner we can pinpoint the problem, the sooner we can get your loved one back on the path to good health. Contact us today to make an appointment. We’re here to help!
