Our doctor team is highly skilled and experienced in simple to more extensive surgical procedures. We use modern techniques and up-to-date medication protocols as well as adhere to strict safety standards.
All of our patients receive the same level of care to minimize the risk associated with anesthesia:
Dental health is just as important for your pets as it is for you! Unlike people, they won't lie down and let us clean their teeth and take dental radiographs awake. Every dental procedure is performed under anesthesia for the safety of your pet and to guarantee a fresh clean mouth! Each individual tooth is evaluated along with gum health just like people.
Similar to a surgical procedure all of our patients receive the same level of care to minimize the risk associated with anesthesia:
It is very common that your pet will require a tooth or teeth to be extracted during their dental procedure even with the best home care routine. Diseased or loose teeth can cause pain and lead to sometimes life-threatening health issues. In most cases, it is in the pet's best interest to remove the diseased teeth and allow the gums to heal. Don't worry! They will still be able to eat and cope very well post dental extractions. Pain control is paramount during dental extractions/oral surgery and will be managed during the procedure and then continued at home with you.
Yes! In the majority of cases, your pet will be able to go home the same day!
There is always a risk with any anesthetic procedure. We do our best to mitigate risk and experience a positive surgery or dental outcome. If your pet is at a higher risk for complications the doctor will discuss your options prior to scheduling the procedure.
Yes! We will not put any pet under anesthesia without an intravenous catheter placed to allow us to administer medications and fluids during the procedure and have venous access in the event of an emergency. Presurgical labwork gives us an inside view of the organ function of your pet. Anesthesia is processed through our organs so it is very important to understand the health of these organs to ensure a positive surgery or dental outcome.
