I've asked around quite a bit, searched the phone book, googled it, etc., to no avail.

Does anyone know of any orthopedic specialists in FL? Preferably Southern Florida, but I'll travel if necessary.

My dog has had two surgeries on his right hind leg, and I know that it will never be perfect, but it seems like the way he walks has gotten worse in the past two weeks(I'm going to take a video today), and last night he couldn't jump on the bed with me, that's never happened. I just want to take him to someone who is extremely qualified in this field, rather than subjecting him to more vet appointments that tell us nothing other than, "that's normal for him"



After his first surgery at the office with me:


See the leg? :(

Have you looked on the College of Veterinary Surgeons website? They have a listing of all board certified vets. I would start by choosing Florida and orthopedic specialists and then you can expand it to orthopedic and general if you don't see what you like.

I know there is an excellent animal hospital/clinic in Estero that has specialized Dr.'s. It is Florida Veterinary Referral Center and 24-hour Emergency and Critical Care....239-992-8878. There is another in Sarasota. My dog needed disc surgery and those were the only two places that had a doctor that was trained to do the surgery. I should say the closest places to Port charlotte. Can your vet not suggest someone for you? Good luck...hope you figure this out.
