Veterinary dental and surgical center to open in Texas

The nation’s first low-cost veterinary dental and surgical center will open in Austin, Texas, in April. In collaboration with Emancipet and PetSmart, the center will offer soft tissue surgeries, dental cleanings, extractions, mass removals to remove certain forms of cancer and would repairs.

The center will also offer surgeries to remove certain forms of malignant cancer, wound repairs and treatment of other medical issues that need surgical intervention. Emancipet estimates it will provide up to 4,000 low cost dental and 3,600 soft tissue surgeries each year. 

These services are currently offered at another clinic, which has limited space and capacity. The center has been made possible thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities.
