VCA Cromwell Animal Hospital

Services Overview

  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.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
