SCHEDULING AN ORTHOPEDIC CONSULT AND SURGERY  

Scheduled orthopedics are available 2-3 days a week.  The majority of TTA/TPLO/Patellar Luxations are scheduled on Monday or Thursday, and require a one night stay.  A pre-operative consult is necessary and can be done at either of our Heartland locations.  Appointments can be scheduled by calling 507-332-0716 (Faribault) or 507-214-7387 (Owatonna), and talking with our receptionist, or with more detailed questions with one of our Doctors.  We make every attempt to accommodate your needs and will make sure your dog is treated like family.

Pre-operative Surgery Instructions:  You will be asked to provide a proof of current vaccinations, copies of medical records and a list of medications.  Any radiographs taken by your Veterinarian may be helpful to review at the initial consult appointment.  We require pre-surgical bloodwork and can do this in-house if not done ahead of time by your regular Veterinarian.  When possible, we would like all dogs off their NSAIDS such as Rimadyl or Deramaxx, 1-2 days prior to surgery.
