Angular Limb Deformity Correction Discharge Instructions

Jan 12, 2013

Your pet underwent surgery to repair the abnormal angle in his/her leg. We applied an external fixator with pins going through the skin into the bone. It will hold the bone together while the bone heals.  It is very important post-operatively to keep your pet quiet for the next 6 weeks. If your pet is allowed to run, jump, or play, the fixation can fail and we will need to go back to surgery.

For more detailed information on recovery guidelines for your pet's surgery, please click on the PDF logo on the side of this page.
