Dental care is an extremely important area of your pet’s health. Dental disease means more than just bad breath – it can also mean kidney and heart disease. We are available to demonstrate proper brushing technique and provide dental exams at any time. We can perform a dental prophylaxis procedure to promote your pet’s dental health and can also perform more complicated procedures as necessary, such as tooth extractions and bonding enamel. Our dental prophylaxis includes a thorough oral exam, tooth cleaning and polishing, and full mouth dental radiographs. When needed, oral surgery will be performed to remove painful and infected teeth. Pets with routine dental care typically live longer, healthier lives.For equine dental care, we are available to float teeth at your home. A full oral assessment is provided to identify any other issues that may affect your horse's performance.
Imaging (x-rays) are utilized to assess injuries. We have digital radiography and ultrasound available at our practice to diagnose, and therefore treat, many types of injuries and illnesses. We also have a full in-house lab to run routine bloodwork. Having this capability in-house allows faster diagnosis and treatment, allowing your pet to return to normal as quickly as possible.
We are very proud to be able to offer chiropractic treatments, including spinal manipulation, for your pets so that they can have a happy and healthy life.
We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands, and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible.
