Pet Arthroscopy in Toledo, OH
Our entire staff understands that the decision to allow your beloved pet to undergo surgery is never an easy one. We strive to ensure your pet’s procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
WHAT IS ARTHROSCOPY?
Arthroscopy is a surgical technique used to visualize, diagnose and treat intra-articular (inside a joint) problems. It is a minimally-invasive procedure and allows for a more thorough, as well as magnified, inspection of the joint. Diagnoses can be made that would otherwise be missed by the naked eye.
Once a diagnosis is made, many conditions can be treated arthroscopically, including:
- Elbow dysplasia
- OCD of the shoulder, elbow, knee, and ankle
- Septic arthritis (joint injection)
By avoiding open surgery, post-operative discomfort is minimized, recovery is significantly quicker, and hospitalization time is shorter.

The facility is top notch but is surpassed by the staff. They were all so attentive, friendly and professional! This was my first visit with my new puppy but I have had dogs all my life and was particularly impressed by this group. I would highly recommend them!
Love everything about this place! So loving and caring toward your babies and I wouldn’t trust anyone else. Glad we found such a wonderful veterinary office.
Have recommended this vet to many and I love the staff.
LOVE the doctors and staff at West Suburban. They take such good care of my three fur babies: Max, Roxy & Sophie.
I had an amazing experience with Dr. Thompson and his staff. Very friendly and reassuring in a high stress time. They fixed my fur baby right back as good as new. Extremely grateful!
The BEST OF THE BEST!!! Kept me updated throughout the day on my dog’s surgery/recovery. Very caring staff!
