Austin Dog Knee Surgery

It’s a scary feeling when you find out that your beloved pet needs a surgical procedure such as Austin dog knee surgery or Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO). These procedures are generally only recommended after medicine and other lifestyle changes have been tried to no success. Though surgical procedures do have their risks and will require downtime and possible rehabilitation for your pet, they eliminate pain, discomfort and disability, improving the quality of life for your pet.

Bridging the Gap between Primary Vet Care and Referral Hospitals

A few years ago, pet owners didn’t have many options in terms of Austin TPLO veterinary surgeons. They would have had to travel to a referral veterinary hospital to have the procedure done, and this was scary for both them and their pet. That’s why Mobile Veterinary Specialist was formed; to bridge the gap between primary vet care and referral vet hospitals.

How Our Mobile Service Works

Here is a quick rundown of how our process works.

  • If your primary vet recommends Austin dog knee surgery, contact MVS.
  • Our Austin CCL tear veterinary surgeons will do a pre-surgical consultation over the phone to ensure mobile surgery is the best fit.
  • Our Austin dog CCL surgeons will schedule a time for the surgery to be performed at the vet’s location.
  • Your vet will provide the surgical suite, the anesthesia and the anesthesia tech. We provide everything else.
  • The surgery will be performed at the date and time that was selected. We provide the surgical report, pain control and instructions for post-op care.

Board Certified Surgeons

The most obvious advantage to choosing our Austin TPLO veterinary surgeons is the convenience we offer. But there are other benefits to consider as well. Our surgeons are board certified and have extensive training in knee surgery and TPLO. We are also a Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. This comprehensive background allows us to offer cutting-edge treatments with proven results. Better yet, our prices are very affordable and actually less than what some non-board certified surgeons charge.

Direct Communication

The compassion that our Austin ACL tear veterinary surgeons deliver is also worth noting. We love animals at our practice, and we are committed to enhancing the lives of pets and pet owners in Texas. Your pet will receive the care and compassion they deserve before, during and after the surgery. For added peace of mind, you will have direct communication with our Austin dog ACL surgeon.

Don’t hesitate to call MVS with questions about Austin dog knee surgery or any of our other orthopedic, neurologic, oncologic or soft tissue procedures. We look forward to hearing from you!


"The surgery went smoothly, with Dr. Might calling me throughout the day with detailed updates. Within 48 hours, the bandages & pain were gone. Now he is moving around better than he was pre-TPLO!"


"It's Comforting to know that our pets can get specialty care at a familiar place and for a more affordable cost."

-Lee Kinser

"Our 9-year-old Lab-Pit mix underwent TPLO surgery and she did not suffer at all. Whatever you are doing, keep it up! She is doing great!"
