Lily- Border Collie

Lily, a 5 year old Border Collie, was diagnosed with Stage 3 Periodontal Disease in March.  Dr. Bill took radiographs of Lily’s mouth and found that some of her teeth needed to be extracted.  Lily, thereafter, received oral surgery and had a tooth extracted along with an oral cleaning.  Upon further inspection, Lily came back again a few weeks later to get another tooth extracted.  Before the surgery Lily was having issues eating due to pain caused by her periodontal disease.  Lily is now doing great, and back to eating like a champ!

We are very satisfied with Lily’s cleaning and oral surgery.  The procedure removed the infected canine tooth, improved her general health and eliminated the open wound on her muzzle as well as cleaned her teeth.  We were informed of the general procedure for surgery, the minimum and maximum charges and were given instructions for post-op care.  The follow-up calls checking on her were appreciated.  Thanks to all the staff for a successful surgical experience!

Noel- Shih Tzu

Noel

Noel, an 11 year old Shih Tzu, came to see Dr. Bill to get oral surgery performed. Noel was diagnosed with Stage 3 Periodontal Disease and had several teeth with resorptive lesions. These lesions cause the tooth to essentially eat itself. These specific type of tooth lesions are not very common in dogs, but are fairly common in felines. In almost all cases, these teeth need removed. In this case, however, the lesions were not too advanced and she received a crown amputation. Noel did have several other extractions. She is now in great oral health and is doing great!

My dog, Noel, had a very positive experience during her dental procedure. The staff and Vet’s are all wonderful and very knowledgeable. Noel was treated very well and spoiled. Thanks to Greenhaven!!

This is Noel’s mouth after surgery as well. Once again, you can see that we extracted some of the teeth from the bottom due to advanced periodontal disease.

Shooter- Australian Shepherd

Shooter came in for an oral health assessment and was diagnosed with stage 2 periodontal disease.  The owners then scheduled for Dr. Bill to perform oral surgery.  Shooter got a prophylactic polish as well as a surgical extraction of one of his teeth that was broken.  Shooter is now doing great and has great oral health thanks to the preventative care methods taken by his owners!
See the owner’s testimonial below!

 

 

“We recently had our Australian Sheppard, Shooter scheduled for a routine dental cleaning. During the initial exam, it was discovered that he had a broken tooth. For the benefit of his overall health, it was recommended that the broken tooth be extracted.

We checked Shooter in for overnight care prior to the dental procedure. He was well taken care of by the Greenhaven staff. He had his teeth cleaned and the damaged tooth extracted the next day. We received specific instructions for post care and the staff at Greenhaven followed up on his progress.

The extraction area healed as expected. In about one week, Shooter was back to eating normally and doing fine. The attention to detail by the staff finding his damaged tooth enhanced his overall health and well being. The dental cleaning is highly recommended for regular health maintenance.

Your provider can explain the health risks to your pet in regards to dental health. We were extremely satisfied with the level of care Shooter received at Greenhaven.

We have always had good results with the care of our animals and look forward to continued happy and healthy pets.”

Kind regards,

The H. Family
