Our goal is your pet's care and comfort. To help ensure your pet's SAFETY AND COMFORT before
and after their procedure, we offer the latest in diagnostic and post-operative care options.
PRE-ANESTHETIC DIAGNOSTIC OPTIONS
A complete physical exam will be performed on your pet prior to the procedure. However, this may not
identify all systemic or metabolic problems. To ensure the safety of your pet we recommend specific pre-anesthetic diagnostics which include:
- Pre-Anesthetic Blood Panels to determine function and health of kidneys and liver as well as determining white and red blood cell counts, glucose and electrolyte levels. In geriatric or at risk pets the doctor will recommend a more in-depth blood panel to also test pancreatic function and/or thyroid function.
- 2 X-rays to survey your pet's heart, lungs and/or abdomen. May also be used to determine arthritic changes in your pet.
- EKG to detect any underlying heart abnormalties or dysfunction'
Choose our pre-anesthetic diagnostic SAFETY PACKAGE and receive a 20% discount for all three. Or
you may choose individual items at full price.
Full Mouth Dental X-ray
Full mouth dental radiographs allow us to find painful lesions below the gum-line such as bone loss, abscess and
tooth resorption. Post-extraction x-rays make sure all of the tooth and root have been removed.
Single dental x-ray fee will be charged for all extractions ($15.45)
- Full mouth dental x-ray fees are :
- Cats/ small dogs (under 20 pounds) $91.30
- Medium dogs (21-50 pounds) $115.70
- Large dogs (over 51 pounds) $152.15
If full mouth radiographs are accepted, no additional fee for post-extractions will be charged
POST-OPERATIVE COMFORT OPTIONS
We care about your pet's comfort after surgery. To give our patients the highest standard of care we offer
comfort options to aid in your pet's healing. Pain medication post-operative gives your pet relief from the
discomfort of surgery as well as helping in recovery and healing. We are also proud to offer Laser
Therapy, which is proven to help promote healing of tissues when aplied to the surgical site upon
completion of the surgery.
REGARDING PATIENTS STAYING OVERNIGHT IN THE HOSPITAL:
At Pend Oreille Veterinary Service we do occasionally keep surgery patients in the hospital overnight
prior to, or after surgery. Every effort is made to make our environment as safe and comforting as
possible for your pet. However, we do want clients to be informed that we are not staffed 24 hours/day.
Your pet will be unattended overnight until the morning staff arrives. Based on availability, we can
sometimes arrange a technician to stay overnight with critical patients. For 24 hour monitoring we
recommend transport to a fully staffed emergency clinic. There are emergency clinics in Coeur d’Alene,
Post Falls and Spokane. Our doctors and staff are available to answer any questions you have regarding
your pet’s overnight care.
