Our hospital is equipped with a surgical laser. This unit minimizes surgical bleeding and reduces surgical time providing for a faster, less painful recovery.
Hyannis hospital has two PennHip certified veterinarians on staff. PennHIP stands for the University of Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program. PennHip is unique in that it classes dogs hips by breed, and is a completely objective method of hip evaluation. More information can be found on the PennHip website: http://www.pennhip.org/. OFA radiographs can be done at the same time as the PennHip radiographs.
Dental cleaning is done through the surgical service at Hyannis Animal Hospital. During your petís wellness exam the veterinarian may make a recommendation to have a dental cleaning done. Because veterinary dental procedures are generally more involved than human ones, anesthesia is required to keep the pet still and free of stress. The anesthesia protocol will be determined based on your petís age and overall condition. Pre anesthetic bloodwork is usually done to make this as safe as possible. Once under anesthesia the veterinarian will reevaluate the condition of the gums and tooth roots. Dental radiographs are sometimes taken to further evaluate trouble spots below the gum line. The teeth are cleaned using an ultrasonic scaler, then polished to a smooth finish. After this the gumline and teeth are flushed with an antibacterial rinse designed to slow the regrowth of bacteria.
Dental care should not be limited to what is done in the hospital. Regular brushing or using a rinse with your pet will reduce the recurrence of tartar and plaque build up.
