Professional Pet Dental Cleanings
Just like any other member of your family, your pet requires oral care.

A thorough dental cleaning requires having your pet put under anesthesia to perform dental x-rays and remove tartar from the teeth and under the gum tissue.
We have a full service radiology lab on premises enabling us to speed diagnosis. X-rays are used to create images of your pet's soft tissue, organs and bones. This procedure allows us to detect, diagnose and treat various diseases and injuries such as arthritis, pneumonia, bone tumors and broken bones. We also perform dental x-rays during our dental procedures in order to see what is happening beneath the gum line as most dental diseases occur in the tooth roots.
We perform spays and neuters which include IV fluids to help keep your pet hydrated and recover faster.
We are a full service veterinary clinic which has scoping capability on-site. Below is a couple of photos of Dr. Lyle Pollock scoping a dog to take gastric biopsies.
Ultrasound technology is used to create images of your pet's organs such as their liver, kidneys, bladder and pancreas in order to detect any growths, gallstones or blockages.
Microchip Pet Identification
Microchips are a safe, permanent way of identifying your pet and protect them for a lifetime. A small rice sized computer chip is placed under the skin in the shoulder area of your pet, much like a vaccination injection. Should your pet go missing and be taken to a veterinary clinic or shelter, your pet will be scanned and identified.
