  Drs. Robert Efron and Krystian Dabrowski both have experience in advanced dental procedures. During procedures, our multi-parameter surgical monitor records your pet's EKG and heart rate, level of oxygen in the blood (pulse oximetry), body temperature, blood pressure, respiratory rate and level of carbon dioxide in the blood. During the surgery at least one technician remains with your pet at all times to monitor anesthetic depth and your pet's condition. The dental suite has two high-speed drills for dividing teeth into sections before extraction and smoothing the bone before suturing. The dental x-ray unit is entirely digital, sending the radiographs to a computer in the dental suite. Radiographs are taken of each affected tooth, both before and after extraction. Post-operative pain medications or antibiotics are given as needed to assure a comfortable recovery for your pet. We will also send medications home with you. If you have any questions about the surgery or medications, just ask!

If you aren't sure if we offer a specific service that's important to you, please ask us. We may already offer it, or can refer you to one of our sister animal hospitals in the area, or one of our veterinary referral hospitals.

All of us here at VCA Cromwell Animal Hospital are pet owners ourselves, and we know that bringing your furry family members to the hospital can sometimes be a stressful situation. We are here for you!

We're a five doctor practice, open 6 days per week to serve you. We have office hours until 7:30pm four days per week, as well as on Saturdays.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Cromwell Animal Hospital is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to this mission, the hospital team relies on many individuals, and each team member is equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for you and your pet. We try to provide a relaxing atmosphere which really allows us to concentrate on you and your pet one on one.

Ja mowie po polsku...Dr. Krystian Dabrowski speaks fluent Polish.

And if things get very complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board-certified specialists.

Teamwork is a constant in our daily practice. From the very first person you speak to, to the person who checks you and your pet out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for you and your pet.
