Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings under anesthesia are the gold standard of veterinary dentistry. However, there are instances in which anesthesia can be avoided. Green Dog Dentals are performed while your pet is awake. Therefore, we strive to create a fear-free, stress-free environment for all our patients. We believe that the experience for each pet begins at the door, that is why our focus is to make sure your pet feels comfortable and safe, so there is a lot of touching, cuddling and socializing prior to beginning the procedure.

The Green Dog Dental is composed of a four step process:

  • First: Comprehensive Veterinary Dental Exam

We begin with a comprehensive veterinary dental exam to determine if your pet is a good candidate for the non-anesthetic dental cleaning. Pets are taken to the treatment area and given a veterinary exam, they are then gently placed on their side while we perform a complete oral exam with full dental charting. If it is determined that your pet is not a candidate for a Green Dog Dental, our on-site veterinarian will discuss those findings and options with you.

  • Second: Dental Scaling & Polishing

Under veterinary supervision, your pet will receive a thorough dental scaling of the buccal and lingual surfaces, going beneath the gumlines, using a combination of ultrasonic (water tipped) and hand scaling techniques. Lastly, each procedure finishes with a dental polish, which helps slow plaque accumulation and tartar buildup.

  • Third: Private Veterinary Consultation

Each client receives a private consultation with our veterinarian at the end of the exam/cleaning to discuss all of the findings and recommendations as well as address any additional health concerns.

  • Fourth: Dental & Healthcare Plan

Each patient has is given an individual assessment regarding their overall health as well as when they return for their next dental cleaning, and information regarding at home care.

Cardiology

Like humans, dogs and cats can suffer from a variety of problems related to their heart and lungs.  Cardiac problems are common in both young and old animals. Symptoms may include lethargy, respiratory difficulty, cough, and weight loss. With proper treatment, most cardiac problems can be managed or resolved.
Green Dog Cardiology is equipped to handle all of your pet’s cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary needs. State-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic cardiology equipment, the same as used in humans, is available for your pet. Green Dog Cardiology is run by Board-certified veterinary cardiologist Dr. Hayley McDonald
Dr. McDonald gained her Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Massey University, New Zealand in 2009. Following graduation, she spent 3 years in small animal practice and a further 2 years as an ECC clinician in Australia. She undertook a Ph.D. at the University of Queensland in 2013 with a focus on pharmacological therapy targeting cardiac fibrosis in ischemic heart disease. Hayley joined the Cardiorespiratory Service at the University of Glasgow in 2015 as a Resident in Small Animal Cardiorespiratory Medicine and has now moved into a lectureship position.

Green Dog Cardiology service features a full-service interventional cardiology suite capable of minimally invasive procedures.

Pet Allergies and How They Affect Your Pet
 
From itchiness to digestive issues and ear infections, allergic reactions can give your pet as much discomfort as they do with humans. A visit to Green Dog can help formulate a treatment plan to attack your pet’s allergy and improve their quality of life.  
 
 
Common Signs of Dermatologic Conditions
  • Licking paws/constant licking
  • Scratching ears
  • Irritated/reddened skin with severe itching
  • Ear infection
  • Hair loss
  • Hair crusting
  • Swollen paws
At Green Dog we use non-invasive methods such as surface skin tests (tape, cytology, scraping) and blood laboratory testing, to help diagnose the most common conditions. Then we can formulate an effective therapeutic plan for some of the most common diseases that affect your pet including:
 
  • Fleas/Flea allergy dermatitis
  • Environment allergies
  • Food allergies
  • Mites
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Infections (bacterial, fungal)
 
 
Allergy Testing And Treatments
 
If you suspect your pet might be suffering from allergies, we provide all of the latest treatments.  We can help determine the cause and provide a treatment plan. We may analyze skin cytology and analyze your pet’s skin cells to rule out other pet dermatology conditions such as bacterial or fungal infections. Common allergens include food, pollens, mold spores, dust mites, and insect bites, with fleas being a common culprit.
 
To treat allergic reactions as well as other pet dermatology issues, we offer a range of treatment options to make your pet comfortable in their own skin again:
 
  • Novel medications (Cytopoint, Apoquel)
  • Immunomodulators
  • Specialty diets for food allergies that help determine what food is causing the reaction.
  • Medicated shampoos and topicals to remove allergens from the hair and soothe irritated skin.
  • Immunotherapy
  • In severe cases, we’ll refer your pet to a specialist to receive the best care.
