Surgical Procedures

The veterinarians at K.Vet and their team of licensed technicians provide the very best care for your pet, whether for a surgical procedure or simply being hospitalized. Our main focus is to guarantee safety and pain management for your pet, while utilizing the most current surgical equipment and practices. Your pet will be under constant supervision during their entire stay within the facility.

The technicians assigned to the surgical team strictly monitor several parameters that determine the quality and depth of anesthesia your pet is receiving including heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen level and temperature. Also, it is standard practice to place an intravenous catheter to administer fluids during and after the procedure, along with any essential emergency medications.

After surgery, a technician stays with your pet until fully recovered from the anesthesia. Once your pet is safely recovered, the technician will call to discuss the surgery, as well as schedule an appointment with discharge instructions. Home-care and administration of medications will be discussed at the discharge appointment.

Dental Procedures

Dental cleanings are required to remove tartar and plaque build up on the surface of teeth such as excess tartar and plaque. During our dental procedures, teeth are thoroughly cleaned with a variety of dental equipment, including an ultrasonic scaler, manual periodontal scalers, curettes, polishers, and a high speed drill for extractions if necessary. After completing the dental cleaning, a plaque-prevention gel, called Oravet, is applied to prevent formation of plaque following a dental cleaning.

We offer periodontal disease therapy, oral sealant applications, scaling and extractions. We also have dental specialist for in-house appointments such as dental consultations, root canal therapy, extractions, dental radiograph, clean & polish, as well as bonding.

Some Signs of Dental Problems include:

  • Bad breath – one of the first signs of dental disease
  • A yellowish-brown crust of plaque on the teeth near the gum line
  • Red and swollen gums
  • Pain or bleeding when your pet eats or when the mouth or gums are touched
  • Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
  • Loose or missing teeth
