I truly don't know what we would have done without Dr. Lommer and her wonderful staff at Aggie Dental. I believe she is one of those people sent from above to help every animal in need and that is exactly what she does. Our almost 15-year-old pup Besitos, aka Besi, fell ill on Sunday, October 9. She woke up from a nap and we saw blood everywhere. As any pet parents would, we rushed her to our local ER. There they told us there wasn't much they could do, the blood seemed to be coming from her nose and we would need to get a CT scan to rule out a tumor. They also mentioned Besi had severe periodontal disease and we should see a dental specialist. They sent us home with a Chinese herbal medication "Yunnan Baiyao" that would help stop the bleeding temporarily until we figured out our next move.
The next day, we saw blood again but this time coming from her TEETH. We called the ER vet back, but their Dental specialist was booked out until Jan 2023. They gave us 4 other specialists to call, one being Aggie. We contacted Aggie and to our surprise, they had an opening, we got lucky as someone canceled - so we took the appt. We went yesterday and had our consultation with Dr. Lommer. We knew Besi's teeth were Terrible, but we were told by other Vet(s) putting Besi under wasn't recommended after she was diagnosed with early-stage kidney disease in Dec. 2020. Besi's last cleaning/extraction was in 2019. When I tell you the condition of our poor baby's teeth was SO bad, I could barely look at the photos they had just taken in front of us. Dr. Lommer went over everything with us, pros, cons, good, bad, other patients' stories, answered all our questions, etc. She was so calm, compassionate, and understanding. She wasn't forcing us to do anything, but we knew leaving Besi's teeth the way they were would cause her more harm than good. We had to make the toughest decision and go with anesthesia to get the CT scan done and figure out a game plan. Dr. Lommer told us they would give Besi IV for a few hours to make sure her kidneys were protected but not too much as they also had to be careful her red blood cell count didn't drop because she was now anemic (due to blood loss from her gums). We gave 100% of our TRUST to Dr. Lommer and her staff. When we got the call there was no tumor we were so THRILLED, however - the severity of her gum disease was worse than we thought. She needed 11 teeth extracted; she would undergo another 1.
5 - 2 hour surgery. As nervous as we were, we gave Dr. Lommer the green light and just prayed everything would be ok. And sure enough around 3 pm we got the call Besi was out of surgery, it was successful!! YAY! Throughout the entire process, we were informed via text with updates, phone calls, and even a cute photo of Besi while they prepped her with IV. They all took such great care of her. Besi's bounce back was also remarkable. Only a short hour after coming home, she was on her feet trying to run (lol), she ate her small dinner, we gave her all her medication as directed by the clinic and she had very minimal post-op bleeding from her nose/mouth. I wish I knew Dr. Lommer sooner, I'm sad my baby (throughout the years) now only has 7 teeth left, but we are so hopeful Besi has a healthy future ahead of her. She is doing great today, back to her normal self. Thank you again Dr. Lommer, we will forever be grateful for your wisdom, knowledge, and most importantly kind heart. Love, Besi, and her Pawrents!


Response from the owner

Dear Sheana, thank you for your kind words, and for trusting us with your baby. It was our pleasure to care for Besi. We're so glad to hear she is back to her perky self! Wishing you all the best! -- Dr. Lommer

Really knowledgable and kind staff with really impressive imagery tech. Our pup had a lot of work done, but with his speedy recovery and little apparent discomfort, you could hardly tell.
