Dentistry for Cats & Dogs

dentistry-brushing-dogs-teeth-milehighvetIt’s just as important to care for your pets’ teeth as it is your own. Did you know: cats and dogs with dental infections have higher rates of bladder, kidney, liver, heart and lung disease due to the increased levels of bacteria entering the pet’s blood stream from its mouth? This is why it’s so important for pets to get regular teeth cleanings. Mile High Veterinary Hospital has your pet dental care needs covered, from teeth cleaning procedures to solutions for home dental care. Our dentistry services for cats & dogs include: dental x-rays, teeth cleaning, tooth extractions & sealing, and coaching & tools on how to perform routine maintenance and dental care for your pet at home. Home care for your pet’s teeth is an important and proactive way to ensure a healthy mouth, and regular teeth cleanings go a long way toward keeping your pet healthy.

Surgery

Surgery for Dogs & Cats | Mile High Animal Hospital of AuroraWe routinely perform surgical procedures on cats & dogs ranging from basic surgeries (spays & neuters) to more advanced surgeries to remove masses, retrieve foreign bodies from the stomach or intestine, treat bladder stones, and more. Regardless of the type of procedure, we take steps to ensure a gentle and speedy recovery of your pet. We utilize a spacious and modern surgical suite, and a carefully designed treatment and recovery area.

 

We take a variety of steps to provide your pet with a safe and comfortable experience. First, we conduct a pre-surgical blood test to determine if there are any organ abnormalities that could impact how your pet will react to anesthesia or the surgical procedure itself. Based on results, we may change strategies based on the results of that pre-surgery blood test.

 

Next we give our pet patients pain relief medication even before the procedure starts. Many studies conclusively show that providing pain relief in advance reduces the amount of pain that patient feels after the surgery. By using a combination of narcotics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, local anesthesia, Class IV Laser Therapy, and Acupuncture, our veterinarians are able to help your pet recover from surgery with as little pain as possible.

 

During surgery, the veterinary surgeon is assisted by a certified veterinary technician, who will monitor your pet’s heart rate, temperature, respiration, blood pressure, oxygen levels, CO2 output, and the depth of anesthesia throughout the procedure.

 

After surgery, your pet wil be placed in a comfortable, warm recovery area, where our veterinary staff will monitor your pet and its recovery. Once completed, your doctor or veterinary technician will call you with an update.

 

If you’re contemplating a surgery for your pet, please contact Mile High Animal Hospital of Aurora at 303.693.6484 to schedule a consult, or the surgical procedure itself.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound Testing for Dogs & Cats | Mile High Animal Hospital of Aurora ColoradoUltrasound is a comfortable, non-invasive diagnostic tool for evaluating internal organs, detecting tumors, signs of disease, pregnancies, and more. In some cases, ultrasound is more effective for diagnosing an issue than x-rays, such as better detecting a foreign body that your pet has swallowed.

 

If you think ultrasound is needed to help diagnose your cat or dog, contact Mile High Animal Hospital of Aurora at 303.693.6484.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations for Dogs & Cats | Mile High Animal Hospital of Aurora ColoradoVaccines are an excellent way to protect your dogs from many preventable illnesses and diseases such as Distemper, Hepatitis, Bordetella, Parvo virus, and Rabies.  For cats, vaccines can help protect them from feline leukemia, rabies, feline herpes, calici, and panleukopenia viruses.
