Orthopedic Referrals

Oakdale Veterinary Group accepts referrals in orthopedic surgery. We work in partnership with referring practices all over California, primarily in the bay area to provide a seemless extension to the service you offer your clients.

Dr Trathan is head of our referral service and is experienced with surgical treatments, chemotherapy, wound management and rehabilitation. In 2013, Dr Trathan completed an extensive 12 month surgical internship at the worlds leading orthopedic and neurosurgery center, 'Fitzpatrick Referrals'. Dr Trathan has a wealth of experience with fracture repair surgical repairs of ligament injuries with procedures like the TPLO.

We strive to do our best for each and every animal and provide you and your clients with a personal service that goes unmatched.

We accept referrals for many conditions including fracture repair, arthrodesis (joint fusion), femoral head ostectomy (FHO), corrective osteotomies, surgical treatment of osteochondritis dessicans (OCD), treatment of medial compartment disease of the elbow (previously referred to as a fragmented coronoid process) and corrective repair of torn ligaments, particularly the cranial cruciate ligament (known as an anterior cruciate ligament in humans).

We have a range of Synthes locking plates for fracture repair and for TPLO surgery. This allows us to treat dogs as small as 10lbs and as large as 160lbs.

If you would like advice on a case please feel free to call, one of our doctors will personally help you in any way we can.
