Dental Radiographs (X-Rays) in Veterinary Patients
The doctors and staff of the Pet Medical Center of Edmond are very excited to announce the addition of dental radiography to the services that we offer to improve the health of your pet. Dental radiographs are one of the most important diagnostic tools available to a veterinary dentist. They allow the dentist to examine the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots of those teeth, and the bone that surrounds the root. Dental radiographs will allow us to provide an even higher level of service to you and your pet.
Dental radiographs are essential in making an accurate diagnosis. That diagnosis is the basis for deciding how to treat our patients, and to determine the probable long term outcome of that treatment. A significant degree of dental disease occurs under the surface of the gum tissue. If that pathology can be discovered early, then we have the ability to intervene and improve the health and quality of life of your pet.
Intra-oral radiographs are made using small radiographic film or a digital sensor placed inside the patient’s mouth, and provide superior quality for examination of individual teeth or sections of the jaws compared with standard-sized veterinary radiographs. Because veterinary patients will not cooperate when the radiographic film or sensor is placed in the mouth, taking dental radiographs requires that the patient to be anesthetized or sedated. The radiation risk to the patient from taking dental radiographs is minimal.
Pet Medical Center constantly strives to grow in the knowledge and technology necessary to provide the best health care possible for your pet. Please contact us to schedule an oral evaluation of your pet.

It’s that time again….Mosquito Season
Mosquito season brings serious concerns..not only for the humans they are attacking, but also for our pets (both cats & dogs). Those pesky little boogers are the source for the spread of heartworm disease in our pets. Heartworm disease is a very serious and potentially deadly disease. There are no obvious outward symptoms in the early stages of this disease so annual testing is vital. Even when administering heartworm prevention monthly it is still recommended by the American Heartworm Association that a heartworm test be performed annually. If heartworm prevention is not given on a strict schedule of every 30 days, there is a window of opportunity for the heartworm to infect your pet . The American Heartworm Association has provided this helpful informational sheet for pet owners in regards to heartworm disease in pets. The Truth About Cats & Dogs
Pet Medical Center Achieves High Level of Veterinary Excellence
We are excited to announce our recent re-accreditation through the American Animal Hospital Association.
This means that we have achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). We earned the AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service.
Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited.
Accredited hospitals are the only hospitals that choose to be evaluated on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond basic state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. AAHA standards are continuously reviewed and updated to keep accredited practices on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence.
We have chosen to be an AAHA-accredited hospital because we value our patient’s health and trust we can offer our clients. At our practice the clients can expect to receive the highest quality care from our well-trained, professional veterinary team.
Only the top small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, we must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.
We have been a locally owned business in Edmond since 2009, however, both doctors have practiced veterinary medicine in Edmond for several years. We pride ourselves on the high level of medicine we offer our patients and the level of customer service we offer our clients. We look forward to many more years of serving our clients, patients & community.
