We strive to make the scheduling process simple and efficient.
Detailed information can be found below for scheduling in-clinic procedures and dental training.
Please fill out a referral form to determine a day and time for the procedure or dental training. Time slots are available on a first come, first serve basis and will not be held for more than 24hrs once offered.
If scheduling a dental or oral surgery procedure at your clinic, read the following:
Pre-anesthetic diagnostics should be performed prior to, and within one month of, the procedure. Additional information on recommended diagnostics can be found here
Please prepare owners for the procedure. Let them know their pet’s leg will be shaved for an IV catheter. Tell them to expect their pet will spend the entire day at the clinic, and that they will be called by Dr. Berning (or the attending doctor, if they prefer) when the procedure is complete. Discuss your hospital anesthesia protocols with them (overnight fasting, insulin administration for diabetic pets, etc). Dr. Berning is available to provide additional information to you or your clients on what to expect with specific procedures.
On the day of the procedure, the patient should be dropped off at your clinic at least one hour prior to the scheduled procedure.
Dr. Berning will require a veterinary technician for anesthesia. The patient’s anesthetic protocols will be determined by the referring veterinarian on the case. All medications (pre-meds, antibiotics, pain medications, etc) will be provided by your clinic, and case-specific recommendations may be made by Dr. Berning. Dental and surgical equipment will be provided by Midwest Mobile Veterinary Dentistry, including intraoral radiography.
The attending doctor is welcome to be present throughout the procedure, and will be responsible for follow-up care with the pet and additional communication with the owners. A complete dental record will be provided at the time of the procedure, and discussion of the recommendations will take place prior to Dr. Berning’s departure from your clinic.
