Pet Dental Care
Talk to Us About Getting Your Pet's Teeth Cleaned at VEC Clinic    Why Your Pet Needs a Teeth Cleaning Pet's teeth can get damaged, and you may not be aware of it, especially when the damage is more serious in the mouth. Your pet may act normal and continue eating as if they don't have a problem. A veterinarian can uncover the issue during cleaning and correct the problem.     Bad breath is another issue that's resolved with teeth cleaning. When you notice that your pet constantly has bad breath, that means there's a condition inside the mouth that needs addressing. Getting your pet's teeth cleaned can uncover the source of the odor and eliminate it, so your pet's breath smells normal again. Leaving plaque untreated increases the potential for a condition known as bacteremia. Bacteria in the pet's mouth can get into the bloodstream and circulate to the organs, which results in illness.     Give us a VEC call to learn more about our dental services and make an appointment to get your pet's teeth cleaned.  It's our goal to help pet owners keep their companions healthy through various services, including teeth cleaning.     Regular dental visits keep your pet's mouth healthy as they age. The veterinarian can keep track of changes in the teeth over time and help you understand the changes that might occur with time. Your pet's mouth stays healthy, which means their body stays healthy because they can eat without pain or discomfort and maintain their body weight. In turn, you don't have to deal with the issues that come with pet dental diseases, which allows you to enjoy your pet and know that you're giving them a long and healthy life.     For an appointment, please call 2334-2334

Medical Imaging Service
    The Four types of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging our veterinarians may utilize to assist in the diagnosis of your pet's condition are:   X-Rays Ultrasounds Endoscopy CT Scans     Complete Digital Radiography    X-rays are instrumental medical imaging tools for veterinarians. They can reveal a substantial amount of information about your pet’s health. The three most common x-rays for pet examinations include:   Abdominal As the name suggests, abdominal x-rays allow the vet to assess the abdomen, stomach, and bladder stones. The shapes of these organs help to indicate inconsistencies that may precede a specific condition or disease. They can also detect tumors, cancerous or otherwise, and they can diagnose pregnancies.   Chest Chest X-rays are reliable for cancer detection. They target the heart and lungs and are the preferential medical imaging tool for assessing trauma and fractures that have affected your pets.     Orthopedic An Orthopedic x-ray is an examination of your pet’s bone configuration. It can reveal fractures, bone deformations, and orthopedic disorders that are common to your pet’s species, age, or history. This may include elbow or hip dysplasia.     Ultrasound  Ultrasound is quick. Scanning usually takes 30 to 60 minutes, and results may be seen immediately on a monitor and captured digitally for further evaluation by a radiologist. Ultrasound can diagnose a wide range of medical conditions. Ultrasound is used to diagnose a wide range of benign and malignant diseases and medical conditions, including: stones within the urinary bladder, kidneys, or gall bladder abnormalities of the gall bladder, urinary bladder, prostate, or kidneys enlarged lymph nodes abnormal blood vessels the fluid within the abdomen a disease of the pancreas or liver adrenal abnormalities uterine infections the diagnosis of pregnancy and fetal viability diseases of the heart muscle (hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathy) and heart base tumors fluid around the heart (pericardial effusion)     Colour Doppler Echocardiography Color Doppler imaging (CDI) is a sophisticated form of ultrasound technology that overlays blood flow and velocity information onto a B-mode, two-dimensional, gray-scale image. This imaging technique, also called color Doppler echocardiography, color-coded Doppler, Doppler color-flow imaging, and color-flow imaging, is a pulsed-wave type Doppler echocardiography. Because the anatomical site of received Doppler-shift information can be readily determined, CDI is useful for documenting normal blood flow patterns and screening the heart and great vessels for abnormal flow areas.     If you would like to schedule an appointment, call 2334-2334 or and we will promptly get back to you.

Computer Tomography Scanning
VEC has a 64-slice CT scanner, this means that for every revolution of the X-ray tube head, up to 64 slices of imaging information are obtained. Each slice can be varied in thickness and can be as little as half a millimeter in width. Using a 64-slice scanner with a fast rotation speed, a large amount of information can be obtained in a very short space of time. A scan of a large dog’s chest for example, can be performed in as little as eight seconds. It also means that very detailed information about certain parts of the body can be obtained in a way that is unparalleled by any other imaging modality. The speed of CT means that many patients have their scans performed under sedation, rather than requiring a general anesthetic.     CT scans are computer-enhanced pets' x-ray procedures most often used to evaluate the body's complex parts, such as the head, chest, joints, and internal organs.   CT scans show different levels of tissue density and produce more detailed images than x-rays. Unlike MRI's, CT scans for cats do not use magnetic field waves, so they cannot compare changes in fluid levels due to inflammation or bleeding. Therefore, CT scans for cats are used when an MRI is considered unnecessary, but a traditional x-ray is inconclusive or insufficient.   CT scans for Pets usually proceed as follows: Pets must be sedated for this procedure because they cannot be restrained by humans and must remain still during the procedure. The Pets is placed on a motorized bed inside of a CT scanner, a machine that takes a series of x-rays from various angles* When one series, or scan, is completed, the bed moves forward, and another scan is taken. A computer uses these scans to create cross-sectional images of the body part under investigation and then display the images on a monitor (An x-ray dye may be injected intravenously to make it easier to see abnormalities) By sequentially scanning an entire body area, an organ or other structure can be imaged without invasively penetrating the body or disrupting neighboring structures.   Our veterinarians most often use CT scans for cats to detect structural changes deep within a cat's body, including: Tumors Deep abscesses or foreign body presence Fractures
