We want to make sure that your pet is happy and healthy. If we do find a medical issue, it will be far better that we catch it early than if it goes unnoticed. Preventative medicine helps your pet live a long life by your side!
We have a complement of 4 scopes for medical and diagnostic procedures. Imaging – X-rays and contrast radiology are important diagnostic tools. We use both a standard X-ray machine and a dental-specific X-ray machine. The addition of a new Siemens G50 color Doppler ultrasound unit greatly complements and enhances the imaging of tissues, heart and abdominal organs.
Digital radiographs produce excellent images in much less time and better allow for root canal procedures. Root canals are performed using a “Light Speed” endodontic system. Besides regular cleanings, pets need home dental care to help slow or prevent advancing periodontal disease and tooth loss. We will happily educate you on how to take care of your pet's teeth! Cats are at particular risk for odontoclastic resorptive lesions (neck lesions) that destroy the tooth at the gum line or the roots. Pets are routinely X-rayed during dental procedures.
