Dental exams are an important part of your pet’s wellness exam. Accumulated plaque and tartar can cause inflammation of the gums which, not only causes bad breath and loose teeth, but also creates a source of infection. If gone untreated, bacteria can enter the bloodstream cause heart and kidney damage. A dental cleaning may be recommended by your veterinarian to help restore your pet’s dental hygiene. Digital dental radiography performed under anesthesia provides precise detail of potential problems occurring below the gum surface. We offer non-anesthetic preventative scale and polish to help maintain your pet's dental health.

Our veterinarians use an ophthalmoscope during the physical exam to visualize the inside of your pet's eyes. If your pet has red eyes or is exhibiting signs of pain such as squinting, our doctors may use corneal stain testing or tear production testing to evaluate the problem. We also have a state-of the-art Tonometry device to measure the pressure within the eye to evaluate the health of your pet’s eyes.
Our veterinarians perform many surgical procedures for the eyes, including “Cherry Eye” surgeries, eyelid growth removal and entropion surgery (eyelid correction).
As with humans, pets can also suffer from heart disease. As part of every physical exam, our doctors will listen to your pet's heart to screen for murmurs, abnormal rhythms, or abnormal respiratory sounds. Heart disease can be further evaluated with bloodwork, blood pressure readings, ECG, chest x-rays, and echogradiograms (heart ultrasound)
At Quail Animal Hospital, we have partnered with California Pet Cardiology to offer Cardiology services in house. Our Cardiologist, Dr. Brewer, performs echocardiograms to view and measure the heart muscles and major cardiac vessels.
