On the Spot Veterinary Surgery is a mobile vet surgery service that does elective orthopedic and soft tissue pet surgeries at your local vet. Dr. Reynolds is a graduate of The Ohio State University. He has extensive experience in both emergency and surgical services. Before starting On the Spot Veterinary Surgery, Dr. Reynolds provided more than 100 orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries per year!
For the past 3 years, we have partnered with On the Spot to have them preform elective orthopedic and soft tissue procedures at our facility. This means that our clients do not have to drive very far to have an expert orthopedic surgeon and his team preform high-quality procedures on your pet.
On the Spot specializes in TPLO and lateral suture correction to repair pet ACL/ CCL injuries. TPLO (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) is the gold standard correction for a torn ACL/CCL in dogs. This procedure involves the stabilization of the knee joint to eliminate the need of that ligament. The recovery time for this type of procedure is 8-12 weeks with recheck exams, done at Petplex Animal Hospital, at 2 weeks (photo/ video check in), 4 weeks, and 8 weeks.
They also preform luxating patella corrections. Many toy and small breeds are predisposed to developing a condition in which their kneecaps become dislocated (luxated). When a kneecap is dislocated or luxated this can cause dogs to be lame and to develop other orthopedic conditions, like arthritis and tear their ACL ligament. and Dr. Reynolds and his team can recommend personalized treatments for your pet depending on the degree of the dislocation.
We recommend to schedule an appointment at Petplex Animal Hospital first, if you suspect that your pet may be sick or injured in anyway. Based on an through physical exam by our qualified veterinarians, if we feel that your pet needs further specialized surgery, we may recommend a consult with On the Spot. We help set up a consult with Dr. Reynolds and his team, to further evaluate your pet. From there, they can make personalized treatment recommendations for your pet. The consults and (if needed) surgery, are all done right at Petplex Animal Hospital!
