Here at Quabbin Animal Hospital, Inc. our goal is to provide the best and most current quality of surgery and medicine for our patients.
In addition to our feline and canine companions, we offer routine care for rabbits, ferrets, gerbils, reptiles and many other exotic pets. We recommend that all companion animals have routine physical examinations yearly. This will allow our veterinarians to monitor any changes from year to year and recommend any dietary, nutritional, medical, surgical or exercise changes that should be made.
Our examination rooms are equipped with a Med Rx system, allowing clients to "see what the doctor sees" on a video monitor when examining eyes, ears and even teeth! This system allows for our veterinarians to reach difficult and small places, and allows owners to better understand any abnormalities found during examinations.
Our sterile surgery unit contains state-of-the-art equipment, which allows us to monitor patient's temperature, blood pressure, respiration, oxygen saturation and ECG as necessary during anesthetic procedures.
Our in-house xray allows us to radiograph (xray) pets of any and all sizes. Our dental x-ray unit provides us with dental xrays, allowing the doctor to thoroughly evaluate, diagnose, and create an appropriate treatment plan.
With a direct link between periodontal disease and liver, kidney and nervous system diseases, routine teeth cleanings can change your pet's life. Even with regular tooth brushing, pets still need routine prophylactic dental cleanings. Cats and dogs with periodontal disease suffer from progressive inflammation and destruction of the tissues supporting the teeth. In addition to causing oral pain and tooth loss, periodontal infections can spread systemically and may adversely affect various organs, including the heart, kidneys and liver.
Periodontal prophylaxis and therapy is very inportant for dogs and cats. There is a direct link between periodontal disease and liver, heart, arthritis, kidney and nervous systems disease. Routing prophylactic cleanings remove plaque (a film of bacteria on the teeth) and tartar and allow the opportunity to evaluate more seriously diseased areas of the mouth and propertly removal unsalvageable teeth.
Our dental capabilities include preventative dental procedures (performed while the pet is under general anesthesia) include hand-scaling, ultrasonic cleaning and polishing, extractions (when necessary), dental X-rays aswell as fluoride treatment and Oravet treatments.
