Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and has the potential to seep into your pet’s bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
We are pleased to offer our clients the highest quality veterinary care. We want nothing but the best for our clients, especially during surgery. It is our goal to make sure that our surgical team is prepared to offer our clients the latest medical procedures.

Cryosurgery is the use of extreme cold to destroy both benign and malignant lesions. This procedure uses a process of repeated freezing and re-thawing the area of interest in order to remove the lesion. In most cases, cryosurgery can be performed without anesthesia and has very few side effects. Cryosurgery is most often used for tumors and precancerous lesions found on the skin, however, it is also used for eyelid tumors and fistulas. If you feel like cryosurgery could be beneficial to your pet, please come in for a consultation.
