ROUTINE DENTAL CLEANINGS
Advanced dentistry includes surgical extractions, soft tissue gingival surgery, root canal therapy, root planing therapy and periodontal therapy.
Digital radiology involves using the same equipment and x-ray beam as before, but the film is replaced by a digital plate that transfers the image to a computer screen. This image is then able to be manipulated by the doctor to enhance, magnify or zoom in on area to aid in diagnostics. The exceptional clarity produced by this image and the speed at which it is produced decreases the amount of time animals need to be under sedation and decreases stress for animal that are not sedated. The technological advances made in digital radiology are making diagnostics easier for doctors and pets alike
LOGIQ E ULTRASOUND
Our innovative ultrasound technology aids in many diagnostic procedures. It gives our doctors the ability to “see inside” the patient, many times eliminating the need for invasive exploratory surgeries. We can obtain valuable information regarding urinary tract infections and tumor growth and development. Ultrasound guided biopsies can be obtained and the samples can be sent for pathology without the stress of extensive surgery. Full scale images with incredible clarity give greater diagnostic confidence.
IM3 PRO2000 DENTAL MACHINE
The IM3 Pro2000 Dental unit is used by many veterinarians and veterinary teaching universities around the world. Dentistry should not be thought of as cosmetic but rather a total health solution since periodontal disease also affects the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. The Pro2000 dental system has many features including a high speed drill hand piece, a low speed motor, suction and a 3 way air/water syringe. The high speed drill features fiber-optic lighting which enables the veterinarian to see what he or she is doing. Overhead lighting is not suitable as their head gets in the way. The low speed motor is used for polishing the teeth. The lower speed and figure 8 movement of the polishing cup reduces the amount of heat generated as the tooth is polished. The suction tip has various strengths and a bacterial filter helping to prevent the pet from swallowing tartar and debris. The 3 way air/water syringe provides a flush or rinse using water or CLS (a chlorhexadine solution). The IM3 Pro 2000 also features an ultrasonic scaler with coolant outlet to allow pressurized water or CLS to be supplied while the teeth are being cleaned. The ultrasonic scaler, with its unique rotational tip movement and ultrasonic removal of plaque and calculus allows it to clean teeth quickly and gently.
Our Laboratory has a Lasercyte machine, a Catalyst Dx, Catalyst One, and a snapshot Dx for blood testing.
- The lasercyte gives us a full 5 part white blood count (WBC) differential and comprehensive, red blood count (RBC) indices. These check for infections and anemia in dogs and cats.
- The catalyst Dx is used to monitor the health status of specific organs. We use this to check liver and kidney values before putting an animal under anesthesia. We can also check a full general health profile if the animal is sick.
- The snapshot Dx is used to test an animal’s thyroid level. An animal can produce too much thyroid hormone or not enough. Once we know where the thyroid level is, we can treat accordingly.
LASER SURGERY ON YOUR PET
Laser surgery can be used to replace a scalpel in many routine surgeries. There are many advantages a laser can offer your pet which would make it more comfortable after its surgical procedure. One advantage would be the pain factor. The laser energy moves through the skin and seals nerve ending meaning less pain postoperatively. It also seals small blood vessels as it cuts, which means less bleeding. With just a beam of intense light passing through the tissue, it doesn’t get crushed, torn or bruised so there is also less discomfort due to the decreased amount of trauma. Laser surgery can be used for a wide variety of different procedures in dogs, cats, birds and other pets. This procedure can be used for spays, neuters, declaws, cyst, tumor and wart removals. It is also very helpful when being used around the ears and in the mouth. Your veterinarian can inform you as to whether or not your pets procedure can be performed with a laser.
