Big River Veterinary Service provides complete dental care for all your pets. Dogs, cats, rabbits and other small mammals are all treated here with the most advanced dental care available. All patients receive a complete oral examination and a CT scan before dental procedures from a prophylactic cleaning to advanced oral surgery and fracture repairs are performed. CT is invaluable at finding underlying disease not visible on oral examination ot with oral radiographs.
