We are focusing on Heart Health this month and want to remind you to have your animals tested for heartworm. This nasty, invasive parasite is introduced usually through a mosquito bite. The treatment is not pleasant for owner or pet. We recommend regular testing and medication to prevent heartworm in the first place.
Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA)
TTA is an orthopedic procedure to repair deficient cranial cruciate ligaments in dogs.
MMP uses a wedge-shaped implant of titanium OrthoFoam™ which both defines the degree of advancement of the tibial tuberosity and holds the bone in its new place while the bony ingrowth that provides permanent biomechanically robust fixation, develops.
