Veterinarian Steve Haymore performs canine knee surgery to repair a torn cruciate ligament.

If your dog or cat has a badly broken leg (or other bone), know that Alpine Animal Hospital is the regional leader in advanced veterinary orthopedic surgical techniques.

Orthopedic Surgeries at Alpine

Among the procedures we now offer are a revolutionary ligament reconstruction process for dogs called TPLO.

This technique allows us to repair a dog’s leg that is hampered by torn ligaments with better results and faster healing.

Unique Rehab Opportunities

We even offer advanced physical therapies to expedite recovery with East Idaho’s only water-borne treadmill.

Working out underwater provides the perfect combination of extra support and mild resistance for safe, fast healing.
