At Sage Creek Animal Hospital in Winnipeg, we’re proud to work alongside the board-certified veterinary surgery specialists at Great Plains Veterinary Surgery, to provide a comprehensive list of orthopedic surgeries and orthopedic care for cats and dogs.
Orthopedic Surgery Services
Orthopedic surgeries deal with the prevention and treatment of problems related to the musculoskeletal system, including issues with muscles, bones, joints, and ligaments.
In addition to addressing injuries, orthopedic surgeries also treat musculoskeletal abnormalities and diseases such as hip dysplasia, cranial cruciate ligament disease, patellar luxation, joint problems, and more. Our orthopedic surgery services encompass the entire scope of veterinary orthopedic concerns.

Comprehensive Orthopedic Care for Pets in Winnipeg
In addition to orthopedic surgery, Sage Creek Animal Hospital provides comprehensive orthopedic care for dogs and cats designed to evaluate, diagnose, and address orthopedic issues that affect a pet’s mobility, comfort, and quality of life.
Orthopedic Exams and Diagnostics
During an orthopedic examination, our veterinarians assess your pet’s musculoskeletal system’s function, balance, and range of motion. We evaluate your pet’s posture, gait, muscle mass, and symmetry, looking for signs of pain, injuries, illness, deformities, and imbalances that could indicate an orthopedic problem. Often, diagnostic imaging (radiology) is also required to reach a diagnosis.
Additional Orthopedic Treatments and Therapies
In addition to surgery, there are a variety of treatments, therapies, and wellness plans designed to help pets living with orthopedic problems. We can help manage your pet’s pain with a combination of diet, nutritional supplements, weight loss, gentle exercise and stretching, and medications that are safe for long-term use. Our veterinarian will talk with you about all of your pet’s treatment options to help you determine the best solution for your pet.
