Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs and spinal surgery to name a few.
Our veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These may include:
Cranial cruciate ligament repair
Fracture (broken bone) repair
Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, will need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.

“You walk out feeling like you matter.”
“Just wanted to say thank you to Marnie and the team at Timaru Family Vet. Let me rush in with my problem child cat after I’ve already been having a rough couple of weeks with other life issues, and she was so kind and wonderful and put up with my tears and emotions. You walk out feeling like you matter rather than just a number on paper. Thank you so much!”
