At Pet Care Center of Apopka, Dr. Greer can perform a variety of major surgeries with great care and skill. A couple of notable procedures include:
- Cruciate ligament (ACL) repair: A ruptured cranial cruciate ligament is very painful for dogs and, in addition to impacting their mobility, can worsen without treatment. With ACL repair, we can restore the functionality of the ligament, improve your pet's mobility, and eliminate their pain.
- Stenotic nares surgery: Brachycephalic dogs and cats (Pugs, English Bulldogs, Persian cats) have a condition called stenotic nares, where the nostrils are unusually narrow and result in serious breathing difficulty. The grunting and snorting noises these breeds often make are a sign of this difficulty, and the need for correction to improve the pet's quality of life. With surgery, stenotic nares can be corrected, and your pet's breathing can greatly improve.
