About Us

Incorporated in 2001, NGD is a family-owned veterinary orthopedics development company known for novel designs and innovative technology. The first to introduce locking plate technology to the veterinary market in early 2004, NGD offers the most comprehensive line of locking plates and fracture fixation devices for addressing conditions of joint function impairment of the canine elbow, hip, and knee.


We have had steady and significant revenue growth, and attribute that to our core belief "that our customers are not just always right, but they know what they need." NGD is driven to meet those needs by providing only the highest-quality products and services to our customers at an affordable price point. This includes our cost-effective and easily integrated Dual Compression Locking Plate Systems and natural CollaVET® resorbable collagen implants—products that are a smart choice for your patients and your practice.
