Dentistries

C3a-dental careIf left untreated, dental problems can lead to larger systemic issues in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver. In fact, it is estimated that more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats develop tooth and gum disease by the age of three years.

It can be helpful for you to recognize the signs of dental problems in your pet. These might include:

  • Bad breath (an earlier indicator of dental disease)
  • A yellowish-brown crust of plaque near the gum line
  • Red and swollen gums
  • Pain or bleeding when eating or touched
  • Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
  • Loose or missing teeth

 

C3b-dental beforeafterOur doctors perform a thorough dental exam as part of your pet’s annual wellness evaluation. Should we find a problem, we will discuss your options for the care of your pet's teeth and gums.

We can recommend periodic dental cleanings dependent upon your dog’s and cat’s individual oral health. We can also perform extractions to address dental abnormalities or dental trauma in younger pets, and to treat periodontal disease in more advanced ages.

Micro Chipping

C9a-microchippingDoes your pet have a microchip? Each year, millions of pets go missing and many never to return. Micro-chipping your pet is a safe, simple and effective way to prevent this tragedy.

The Animal Clinic of East Avenue offers the HomeAgain microchip system. HomeAgain provides a number of very useful services to pet owners such as their National Pet Recovery Database, Lost Pet Specialists, Rapid Lost Pet Alerts, Lost Pet Medical Insurance, Travel Assistance for Found Pets, and more.

Approximately, the size of a grain of rice, identification micro-chips are encoded with your pet's vital information and implanted, non-invasively, just beneath the skin, usually between the shoulder blades. Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters across the country and around the world are equipped with scanners capable of reading these microchips.


Nutrition

C10a-IMG 3030-prescription-dietsMany pets require special diets to cope with food allergies, remedy underlying medical conditions, provide life-stage appropriate nutrition, and reduce obesity which may agitate a parallel condition and adversely affect quality of life.

Our staff is well-versed in identifying diet-related issues and developing nutritional programs to treat your animal effectively. For your convenience, The Animal Clinic of East Avenue maintains a broad range of prescription foods for both cats and dogs, young and old.




Referrals

C8a referralsThe extensive training and experience of our doctors means that we are able to manage a wide range of complex cases and provide care through a number of veterinary treatments.

However, some complex cases may require expertise, testing and/or equipment which is beyond our in-house capabilities. In these cases, we gladly act as your pet’s health advocate, interacting with referring doctors, interpreting results, advising you on options, and managing their overall care.

For your convenience and peace of mind surrounding advanced surgical care, we maintain in-house access to board-certified surgical expertise through our close association with Dr. Kathy Collins. Dr. Collins is one of the finest surgeons in Western NY and is particularly proficient in TPLOs for knee repair in large-breed dogs, amongst many other surgical procedures.

Additionally, we maintain close and collaborative relationships with Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Service Rochester as well as the Cornell University Hospital for Animals. Both institutions are celebrated for the highest standards of care and service.


Surgeries

We appreciate that surgery can be an anxious and worrisome experience for you and for your pet. We strive to ensure your pet’s interaction with us is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

To that end, we provide our clients with a clear understanding of the options to surgery, why a procedure may be necessary, what the procedure entails, and most importantly, what the proper post-operative care will be for the swiftest possible recovery.

Our highly trained veterinarians and certified technicians deliver the highest quality of surgical care for your pet. When surgery is required, we offer you convenient access to routine procedures, such as spay/neuter, tumor removal, laceration and wound repair, to more complex procedures such as splenectomies and orthopedic repairs.

C5b-anesthesia monitoringBeyond routine procedures, we offer in-house access to board-certified surgeries through our close association with Dr. Kathy Collins for you convenience and peace of mind. Amongst many other skills, Dr. Collins is an expert in TPLOs for knee repairs in large-breed dogs

We also offer hospitalization for surgical as well as medical patients, which includes the following:

  • Daily physical examination with a doctor
  • Daily treatments as needed
  • Daily walks outside with a veterinary technician or kennel attendant
  • Daily feedings appropriate for the post-surgical care of your pet
  • Daily cage cleaning and disinfecting
  • And of course, LOTS of TLC throughout the day.

Pain Management

The Animal Clinic of East Avenue also believes that identifying and relieving pain is essential to a swift recovery. Therefore, pain management is an important aspect of our intra- and post-surgical protocols. At discharge, we may also send additional pain management medication home with you after providing a thorough explanation of its proper use and dosage.

Anesthesia & Monitoring

Anesthesia and cardiovascular monitoring are integral aspects of every surgery we perform. For this reason, we provide your pet with the best and most


Wellness Exams

Most of us are very tuned in to the physical and emotional well being of our pets. But because your pet may be unable to communicate new pains, discomforts, pains or health changes, we recommend regular examinations as a cornerstone to your pet’s wellbeing and health management. Routine exams provide you and your veterinarian with an ongoing record of your pet's overall health. These are the best opportunity to identify and treat medical issues early, before they become more serious health challenges. We consider routine exams the best forum to facilitate open client communication. We provision sufficient time in these appointments to update any necessary vaccines, fully explain any health issues, identify options for treatment and afford you time to ask your veterinarian important questions about your pet's health, behavior and daily care.
