DeAngelis Surgery for Cats & Dogs
DeAngelis Surgery is a procedure used to surgically treat torn cranial cruciate ligaments (CCL) in both cats and dogs. This type of surgery is often recommended for pets who are experiencing pain, limping, or even lameness due to a CCL tear.
The surgery is considered highly successful with many pets returning to normal activity levels within a few weeks of the procedure. With that said, it’s important to note this type of surgery requires a significant amount of aftercare and rehabilitation.
Diagnosis and Treatment
At Plus One Vet, our staff will perform an exam in order to accurately diagnose if a pet has suffered from a CCL tear. Our team will discuss treatment options with you if a tear is determined. One such option is the DeAngelis Surgery.
