Pet Surgery & Dental

Monmouth Small Animal Hospital
Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken, or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed, or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team, and we’ll be happy to help.
We now have a dental unit that allows us to do much safer extractions, including surgical extractions when needed.
By spaying or neutering your pet, you’re protecting them against potentially deadly diseases, reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer. In addition, spaying/neutering your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.
Our surgery includes the use of a Co2 surgical laser which provides much less pain by searing nerve endings. It is now the only way we do declaws.
We also use the laser for stenotic nares, elongated soft palates, and ablation of some non-surgical tumors.
