Veterinary Pet Surgery
The prospect of surgery on your pet can be unpleasant. No one wants to subject their beloved pet to a surgical procedure that can be frightening, uncomfortable, or have potential risks associated with it. At TotalBond Veterinary Hospital at Forestbrook, we prioritize your pet’s safety and comfort and your peace of mind. We provide best-in-class surgical procedures, methods, facilities, and expertise for even the most routine procedure, whether our own DVM or bringing in a Board-certified veterinary surgeon with whom we have worked for many years. Either way you can be assured of the highest level of care for your pet - which always includes, without exception, Dr. Epstein and his team's meticulous, robust attention to pain management.

Pet Dental Services
Dogs and cats experience the world largely with their mouths. They bite, chew, grind, carry, feel, and more with their teeth. As a result, dental care is extremely important. It not only helps them feel their best, but can ensure your pet’s overall health is looked after and that no serious issues can shorten their lifespan.
Unfortunately, we tend to find that our pet patients’ teeth are slightly neglected— even with the most dedicated, caring, and attentive owners. In fact, 4 out of 5 dogs and cats have a form of dental disease by the time they turn three years old. This makes dental disease the single most common condition that a pet can experience. The good news? There are plenty of simple preventative steps you can take in partnership with your vet that will help your best friend stay happy and healthy for years to come.
