Haven Lake Animal Hospital has been providing the communities of Milford, Dover, Milton, Lewes, and Rehoboth with expert veterinary care for more than 13 years. An important element of that care is providing our experience in general and orthopedic surgery for your pets when they need it the most.


Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery is one of the fastest growing fields in veterinary medicine. The opportunities it provides your pet to live a pain-free and active life are tremendous.

When surgical intervention is combined with our comprehensive rehabilitation services, the odds for your pet’s successful recovery are staggering. Our veterinary staff is fully trained in the art of orthopedic surgery, and our doctors take a keen interest in following its scientific advancements.

When facing these types of changes in your pet’s health, it is important to have a veterinarian you trust, and that is why Haven Lake Animal Hospital is here. With more than 13 years of quality veterinary care in the Milford, Dover, Milton, Lewes, and Rehoboth areas, we have the experience and know-how to treat these conditions and help you get the most out of your beloved pet throughout his or her golden years.


Haven Lake Animal Hospital is fully equipped to offer a full range of orthopedic surgery options, including procedures such as:

  • Cranial cruciate ligament repair
  • Luxating patella (knee cap) repair
  • External fixature fracture repair
  • Fracture repair through pins and wiring

However, if those conditions sound familiar to you and your pet, then you understand how important it is to seek quality treatment and rehabilitation for the condition.
