Our specialist in small animal surgery, Dr. Christopher Jordan, provides a broad range of diagnostic and surgical procedures including orthopedic (i.e. TPLO), neurologic and soft tissue surgeries.

Dr. Jordan meets with all his patients to fully assess their condition and he will discuss their treatment plan and aftercare in detail with you. Pre and post operative pain management ensures your furry family member is as comfortable as possible during their stay with us and they will be monitored by a veterinary nurse not just during the procedure but through the night and there is always a doctor either in clinic or on call to our hospital team 24 hours a day.

When your pet is ready to go home you will meet with a veterinary nurse, who will go through their aftercare in detail with you and all information will be provided in writing as sometimes there is a lot to remember. Once they have gone home with you, then we will monitor their progress through regular rechecks and for our orthopedic and neurological surgery, we recommend a physiotherapy consult with our board-certified rehabilitation specialist, Dr. Tara Edwards, including hydrotherapy in the Okanagan’s only underwater treadmill and exercises you can do at home with them to ensure that they are back on all paws as soon as possible. We are available on the phone or via email during your pet’s recovery time and beyond if you have any questions about your pet’s care.

Estimates are provided before any surgery covering your pet’s treatment plan. However, unforeseen circumstances during surgery can change an estimate, as well as the necessary post-operative care. Your family vet will be kept up to date throughout and will receive copies of all reports, radiographs (if done) and test results so they have a complete record of your pet’s care at the hospital.
