If your pet is displaying any signs of joint pain or stiffness, an x-ray and blood work are necessary to diagnose the issue. However, if an x-ray and blood work provide insufficient information to diagnose, an arthroscopy may be necessary.
An arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows for thorough investigation and treatment of the joints in the shoulder, elbow, and knee. This procedure can be accomplished with a few tiny incisions, as opposed to traditional open-joint surgeries that require larger incisions.
