I had my dog in recently to Lacombe Veterinary Centre for dental work. With his breed, dental work and teeth extraction are very common and expected. The level of care from this team far surpassed my expectations. As this was his first dental, I wasn't sure what to expect. They explained exactly what the procedure was going to entail and all the "what-ifs" so that I fully understood the potential outcomes. The communication was by far the best part of the day. I received multiple phone calls with updates and inquiries -- which put my mind at ease! The team was extremely professional and the facilities were spotless. Everything went very smooth, even with a few teeth extractions. Skylar did the procedure and went through the x-rays afterwards with me explaining which teeth he took and why. It was a nice touch knowing that they didn't go at this with aggression and remove teeth that weren't quite ready to go. Jenna was amazing and went through all the post-op care and explained the potential side effects of all the medication and surgery (shivering, whining, drooling blood) -- all normal! So that when they happened later on that evening I was aware that this was considered normal and not to panic! I felt totally prepared leaving the Centre with my meds and what to watch for. Overall, the Lacombe Veterinary Centre was professional, clean, and genuinely had the best interest of my pet in mind. I will absolutely be returning (from 6 hours outside of Lacombe) for next years dental!
