Dentistry & Surgery
Our veterinarians are all experienced in surgery and have the capabilities of handling elective and emergency surgery. We provide scheduled surgeries Tuesday through Thursday and emergency surgical services Monday through Saturday. Our surgeries are performed using isoflurane, an inhaled anesthetic gas, and our patients’ heart rate, EKG, respiratory rate, end tidal CO2, blood pressure, body temperature and oxygen saturation of the blood are monitored by a certified veterinary technician (CVT) during the procedure.
We routinely perform orthopedic surgeries at our hospital. We have the capabilities to repair ACL tears, patella luxations, femoral head ostectomy, minor fracture repair, and other orthopedic needs.
One of the most overlooked medical problems affecting dogs and cats is dental disease. More than 85% of dogs and cats older than fours years have significant dental disease. Dental disease is an infection resulting from the build-up of plaque on the surfaces of the teeth around the gums. To treat dental disease, your pet’s teeth need to be scaled and polished using special dental equipment. This procedure cleans the surface of the tooth and then polishes it smooth to help prevent further accumulation of plaque. While treatment is important, prevention is the key. To help promote dental hygiene our hospital provides prescription diets which are designed to help reduce the plaque build up on your pet’s teeth. We also have prescription dental rawhides that help clean the teeth and medicated tooth paste.
