Orthopaedics is the branch of veterinary medicine concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system (bones and muscles).

At Oakham Veterinary Hospital our vets will assist owners whose pets have orthopaedic problems with the use of surgical and non surgical methods. They treat a diverse range of musculoskeletal disorders such as sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumours, congenital disorders and trauma.

Our vets will examine your pet thoroughly to determine the origin and cause of any lameness. Where necessary they will carry out complementary tests to investigate the cause of lameness involving radiography studies (X-rys), arthocentesis (joint tap), arthroscopy (inserting a camera into the joint) or other modes of advanced imaging. The vets will strive to return your pet to a fit, healthy condition to keep enjoying routine family activities: walking, playing, working, sport etc.
