Orthopedic Services for Pets

Healthy bones and joints are critical for your pet’s quality of life and longevity. Over their lives, they can be exposed to the risk of injury, including bone fractures and ligament damage. At Bow River, we offer orthopedic care in-house, courtesy of Dr. Audrey Remedios, our board-certified surgeon.

How do I schedule an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon?

Our surgeon operates on a referral basis. Your pet’s veterinarian will refer the case to Dr. Remedios, who can perform the surgery at our facility.
