Orthopedic Surgery

At Cape Veterinary Clinic, we are dedicated to providing exceptional veterinary care that goes beyond the ordinary. Our commitment to your pet’s well-being drives us to offer specialized orthopedic procedures, ensuring that your best friend receives the highest quality of care when they need it most. Our team takes pride in being one of the few veterinary clinics in the area to offer cutting-edge orthopedic surgeries, with a particular focus on TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy). This advanced procedure is designed to address one of the most common orthopedic issues in pets – cranial cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. TPLO surgery involves precisely altering the angle of the tibia to eliminate instability in the knee joint and provide lasting relief for your pet.
