Our surgical team is dedicated to the care of their patients. We are constantly learning new things to give our patients the highest quality medicine the veterinary world has to offer. We are always looking for new ways to treat patients with less anesthesia and surgical time.
We will also make sure you, as an owner, understand the procedures your pets are going through. We will talk you through the whole process and answer any questions you may have. We will do our best to keep you informed about your pets the entire time they are in our hands.
Dental disease is one of the most overlooked diseases in pets even though it is very prevalent and dangerous. If left untreated, the disease can travel through the bloodstream. This causes many problems, including heart, liver, and kidney disease.
Good dental care also requires routine examinations by a veterinarian. Veterinarians can catch dental disease early, help you figure out if there is more you can do, and even recommend a professional dental cleaning if the disease is really bad. Professional dental cleanings under anesthesia are the very best way to stop dental disease. We clean your pet’s teeth as your dentist does clean yours.
Laser surgery uses a beam of a certain wavelength of light to cut tissue instead of using a scalpel blade. Because our surgeons are highly skilled, they can control the amount of light used, which gives them extreme surgical precision.
Many owners wonder why laser surgery is a good idea. There are many benefits. Patients suffer from less pain after surgery. There is less bleeding during surgery, which means fewer complications. The risk of infection is reduced when a laser is used instead of a scalpel.
We are very proud of our laboratory. We are able to perform many diagnostic tests quickly and efficiently in it. We can do many simple tests but are also able to offer some more complex ones, too! We are able to run heartworm tests, leukemia and FIV tests, and full blood work for those who are interested in it. There are also many other tests we offer to our patients.
Our doctors at Vista Hills Animal Hospital are certified in theriogenology, medicine that focuses on reproduction. Have questions about what this might look like for your pet? Give us a call and we can answer any questions you may have.
