We are so excited to announce that we have recently become re-accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, the only trusted evaluator of veterinary hospitals in the US and Canada. Only about 12% of veterinary hospitals meet the evaluation’s high standards and carry this accreditation, so we are very proud of our team.

Being AAHA accredited means the level of care we provide to patients is very high.
Our practice is evaluated on more than 900 standards that directly correlate to the quality of care we provide to your pets.

Thanks to the AAHA Standards of Accreditation

• We are trained to handle pets gently and safely, which minimizes stress during veterinary visits.
• You consider pain assessment and control to be a valuable part of every pet’s visit, which helps promote faster healing and comfort.
• A practice team member will be dedicated to monitoring pets under anesthesia.
• We provide nutritional assessments and counseling to help clients make informed decisions about their pets’ diets.
• Dental procedures are performed by trained team members who follow the highest standards of dental care.

New Surgical Technique available at Coastal Sunrise Animal Hospital for torn CCL in Canines

The MMP (Modified Maquet Procedure) TTA (Tibial Tuberosity Advancement) is an innovative surgery used for repairing cranial cruciate ligament ruptures in the knee joints of dogs. It is an alternative to a TPLO surgery that was introduced to the US 5 years ago. The MMP TTA procedure allows patients to return to function faster and has fewer long-term complications than other techniques. A titanium foam implant is used to advance the tibial crest, which pulls the head of the femur back into proper position. This implant is porous and encourages bone growth into the implant for added stability. The implant will fill with enough bone 4-6 weeks after surgery to stabilize the repair.

Dr. Gandy has completed training courses to perform this procedure. He is happy to accept referrals or new clients for orthopedic surgeries on dogs in Escambia County and Santa Rosa County areas. Contact us today and learn more about how the MMP TTA can help your four-legged friend.
