The Luke and Lily Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic (LSNC) provides students at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University with opportunities for surgical training while serving pets in need.
Each spring, the Tufts Shelter Medicine Program offers a free dental cleaning to dogs from shelters and rescues as part of Shelter Dog Dental Day. Veterinary students perform the cleanings under the supervision of three veterinary dental specialists, a board-certified, anesthesiologist and two veterinary technicians.
To qualify, the dogs must be examined by your veterinarian within one month of the procedure day. If the veterinarian feels that pre-anesthetic blood work should be performed prior to any anesthetic procedure, this testing should be completed about one week before the procedure day. If pre-operative antibiotics were recommended by your veterinarian, the dog must be on them for at least the week prior to the procedure.
