Dental Care


Veterinary dentistry requires general anesthesia, the preferred and safest method of performing dentistry. The use of anesthesia allows us to control the airway and prevent fluid from entering the airway, something simple sedation cannot provide. We offer full ultrasonic scaling and polishing under anesthesia. All veterinary dentistry work includes: a pre-anesthetic examination, pre-anesthetic blood work, an intra-venous (IV) catheter and fluids, anesthetic monitoring (EKG, heart rate, respirations, pulse oximetry, carbon dioxide, blood pressure and temperature). We also do full mouth digital radiographs for all patients. The images are available to us instantly, allowing us to analyze and treat dental issues below the gum line.


Digital dental radiology allows us to more accurately diagnose and treat dental problems below the gum line, where they are not visible to the eye. Our patient records and files are paperless so we can quickly and efficiently share medical records, lab reports and radiographs with the carefully cultivated group of specialists we have partnered with over the years.


Effective pain control for your pet employs a proactive, multi-mode approach that starts with pre-operative medications, includes an individualized anesthetic protocol and continues into the postoperative period. Local (regional) anesthesia plays an important part in the pain control of oral surgical patients. These techniques are used for a number of common oral procedures, including extractions, periodontal flap surgery, treatment of traumatic injuries of the oral cavity, tumor removal and palatal surgery.


Fractured teeth are a very common occurrence in our pets, especially large breed dogs. This is because they tend to chew on hard things (ie. bone, rocks, sticks, nylabone, etc) which break their teeth or repetitively chew on items, such as tennis balls. Bonded sealants are a relatively straightforward treatment if performed by a specially trained veterinarian. Prior to applying the sealant, a dental x-ray must be taken to make sure the tooth is healthy. This procedure can be considered for all fractured teeth without pulp exposure (a fracture into the root of the tooth). This procedure will result in:
  • Reduce sensitivity (pain)
  • Block off the pathway for infection
  • Smooth the tooth to decrease periodontal disease
It is natural to be concerned when considering major oral surgery for your pet. These fears are due to the unfamiliar nature of the pet's problem.

360 Pet Medical can also provide routine and advanced Periodontics, including:
  • Gingivectomies
  • Oral surgery (mass removals, biopsy, etc)
  • Surgical extractions
  • Application of Doxirobe gel

Diagnostic Tools

Beyond the important, hands-on exam performed on every patient, we also have numerous advanced tools and technology at our disposal to help obtain an accurate and timely diagnosis of your pet’s illness. Our in-house lab equipment provides expeditious blood work results. This includes complete blood counts (CBC), chemistry panels (liver, kidneys, glucose, electrolytes, etc), coagulation profiles (clotting profile), glucose curves, pancreatic lipase enzyme, feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus testing, parvovirus testing, etc. We have microscopy on-site to analyze fine needle aspirates (to evaluate tumors), blood smears, ear swabs (to evaluate ear infections), skin cytology (to evaluate infectious or parasitic organisms), urinalysis and more. We offer high-quality, dental and full scale digital radiographs (X-rays), which not only allow us to view images quickly, but also permit us the ability to email them to the board-certified dentists and/or radiologists with whom we consult. Our veterinarians use X-Rays to for a wide variety of pet needs. They can be used to detect bone fractures, tumors, as well as foreign objects that may have been swallowed by your pet such as toys or rocks. X- Rays are also used to detect issues with the heart, stomach or intestines.


Our state-of-the-art radiograph machine allows us to immediately view images and make diagnoses. Fewer retakes are needed due to bad exposures or inappropriate positioning, reducing the stress you pet may feel during the process. Additionally, we are able to send digital images to specialists for quick evaluation or further interpretation, if needed. We also have a dental digital radiograph machine, whose images are available to us instantly, allowing us to analyze and treat dental issues below the gum line. Our doctors that perform dental radiographs in our hospital have been extensively trained by board certified dentists and regularly consult with a local veterinary dentist.


Veterinary ultrasound has proven to be one of the most powerful tools used in veterinary medicine. An ultrasound examination, also known as ultrasonography, is a non-invasive imaging technique that allows internal body structures to be seen by recording echoes or reflections of ultrasonic waves. Ultrasound waves can generate excellent images of the abdominal cavity including:
  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Gallbladder
  • Kidneys
  • Pancreas
  • Adrenal Glands
  • Gastrointestinal tract (stomach, small and large intestine)
  • Tumors (Benign and Cancerous)
  • Lymph nodes
  • Bladder
  • Uterus and/or testicles
  • Heart
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Evaluation for fluid
  • Pregnancy evaluation Cardiac (heart)
  • In-House Laboratory


The 360 Pet Medical in-house laboratory allows us to perform many types of testing that can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of your pet. Our in house capabilities include:

Complete Blood Count - White blood cells, red blood cells, platelets. This can be useful to determine the level of inflammation or infection in the body, anemia due to disease, increase or decrease in platelet levels, the specific white blood cells altered in a disease state.
  • Chemistry profile- evaluation of liver, kidney, glucose, lipase/amylase, protein levels
  • Electrolyte Panel – measures the levels of electrolytes in the blood (sodium, potassium, chloride).
  • Coagulation profile – Test for abnormal blood clotting. This can be found secondary to poisoning, disease, auto-immune problems, etc.
  • Canine Pancreatic Lipase – Test for determining the risk of pancreatitis. Although this test is not specific to only pancreatitis, it can be used in conjunction with other testing to determine the likelihood of this disease.
  • Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and Feline Leukemia Virus – Test to determine exposure and potential infections that are spread for infected animals and have no cure.
  • Canine Parvovirus – Test to determine exposure to canine parvovirus.
This is a very common, extremely contagious and potentially deadly disease that often infects puppies. It can also affect older animals with poor immunity to the disease.


Anesthesia is used during all surgical procedures to minimize pain and discomfort to patients. Several types of anesthesia can be utilized depending on the location and degree of need: pre-anesthetic, general, local, regional and postoperative.. At 360 Pet Medical we use a variety of equipment to ensure the safety of your pet during procedures. This equipment includes the monitoring of:
  • Heart Rate
  • Respirations
  • Electrocardiogram
  • Blood pressure
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Oxygenation
  • Temperature
  • Anesthetic Depth


Telemedicine allows us to consult with a variety of specialists and colleagues around the world. This includes:
  • Internal medicine specialists
  • Oncologists
  • Surgeons
  • Radiologists
  • Cardiologists
  • Dermatologists
  • Dentists
  • Neurologists
  • Ophthalmologists
  • Alternative medicine specialists
This aids in our ability to provide progressive, state of the art medical care to all of our patients.

Emergency Care

During business hours, we make every effort to see our own emergencies. After regular business hours, on the weekends, and over a holiday, we direct our clients to Pet Emergency and Trauma Service (PETS). PETS provides after hours care and monitoring for patients that have had procedures or been hospitalized at their regular veterinary clinic. Your pet may not be ready to go home yet, so PETS will provide the needed care overnight or through the weekend.


360 Pet Medical as well as PETS provide emergency surgical services. We have a fully equipped surgical suite complete with trained veterinary technicians, Electrocardiograms, blood pressure monitoring, and oxygen saturation monitoring to keep your pet as safe as possible during surgery. PETS is continuously staffed with veterinarians and veterinary technicians, on-site, when our business is closed. They are located near the Blue Basket, at the intersection of Springhill and 19th Ave. North and their phone number is 406-587-3996.

General Medicine


Sometimes pets can prove to be challenging for their pet owners. Barking, meowing, scratching, biting,digging, chewing, escaping, inappropriate urination or defecation and running can often leave pet parents wondering what they did wrong. At 360 Pet Medical, we work closely will all of our patients and their pet parents when behavior his affecting everyone in the home. We can recommend and outline a plan for use at home that will ensure everyone will feel better.


Animals can be susceptible to hundreds of skin disorders. Dermatological symptoms can be so severe that the skin may become irritated, sore, and infected. Identifying, understanding and treating the underlying problem is the most important aspect of controlling the itching sensation. With the correct diagnosis and treatment, we know your pet will be feeling happier, healthier, and far less itchy.


At 360 Pet Medical, our skilled team collects and uses many pieces of information to create a complete picture of your pet's condition. Internal medicine is aimed specifically at diagnosing, treating and managing diseases or ailments that affect your pet’s organs or other internal structures. By using our in-house, state-of-the-art techniques and equipment along with information collected from your pet’s history, lab results, imaging studies, and special procedures/testing, our doctors can diagnose and treat medical conditions in a more efficient manner. Dr. Loni Odenbeck sees cases from referring clinics around the valley for abdominal ultrasounds, as well as cardiac work-ups. We work closely with specialists in the valley to provide answers to even the most complicated cases.


Just like in humans, Neurology is the study of the nervous system. This includes the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and the junctions between nerves and muscles. If your pet appears to be suffering from a neurological disorder, the 360 Pet Medical team can help to determine the source of the problem and the most efficient way to treat it. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment can quickly and efficiently assist the medical staff to determine the cause of your pet's ailments.


Nutrition is an integral piece of your pet’s overall health. Quality nutrition enhances pets' quality and quantity of life, and is essential for your pet's optimal care. Incorporating nutritional evaluation into regular animal care is critical to maintaining pets' health, as well as their response to disease and injury. Like many human foods, a lot of pet food has become over-processed and lacks nutritional benefits. The dietary requirements for dogs and cats are very different than those for humans. We strongly recommend discussing nutrition and diet changes with your veterinarian prior to making any switches.

When treating pets with chronic disease, good nutrition is not only beneficial, it is essential. There are many specialty foods made for canines and felines that have been created specifically to aid in treatment of diseases. On-site, we carry primarily prescription Purina Pro Plan or Royal Canin lines of canine and feline diets.


The diagnosis of cancer is often very emotional and scary. However, in many cases, your veterinary oncologist can provide you with treatment options, ranging from surgery to chemotherapy. We are fortunate to have a great relationship with Bridger Veterinary Specialists and their board-certified oncologists/surgeons. In cooperation with them, we will do our best to provide a comprehensive and multi-modal treatment approach for your cancer diagnosis.

Treatment can vary and is decided on a case-by-case basis. Some animals receive oral or injectable medication, the same as humans. Others do well with alternative modalities, such as Chinese herbals. Patients receiving chemotherapy have frequent exams and blood work, to ensure that health and organ functions are not compromised during treatment.

The decision to treat cancer is a very personal one. We respect our owners’ decisions regarding treatment and offer options that include palliative care and end-of-life discussions.


Our pets rely on their senses to explore and enjoy their world, so it’s critical that they have optimal vision. Our doctors at 360 Pet Medical can perform diagnostics and treatment options for a multitude of ocular diseases. They can also refer your animals to a specialists as needed. At 360 Pet Medical, we understand the need to have advanced eye care specialists in order to provide the very best outcome for our pets. An ophthalmologist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions or illnesses involving the eyes and associated structures. An ophthalmologist offers both surgical and medical (non-surgical) methods of treatment and care. We work with ophthalmologists from Colorado and Washington, as well as veterinarians that have a special interest in ophthalmology in Helena, Montana.

Preventative Care


At 360° Pet Medical, we focus on wellness and prevention. We recommendyearly or twice-yearly exams for our patients, depending on their age. This is especially important as our pets age about 7 times faster than us. Wellness exams include: weight check, examination of ears/mouth/teeth, listening to heart and lungs, and evaluation of abdomen/lymph nodes/skin. During these exams, questions can be answered as to diet, supplements, and any concerns the owner may be having.


Part of preventative care may include administering vaccinations, based on the patient’s lifestyle. Without vaccinations, your pet is susceptible to a variety of deadly diseases such as canine distemper, feline rhinovirus, and rabies. Generally, your pet should start receiving important vaccines at 6 to 8 weeks of age. At 360° Pet Medical, we follow AAHA and AVMA guidelines for vaccinations, therefore avoiding over-vaccination. For both our canine and feline friends, we strictly follow Montana legal guidelines for rabies vaccinations. For canines, we offer 3-year distemper/adenovirus/parvovirus vaccination protocols utilizing recombinant vaccine technology. This new technology avoids the immunosuppression that occurs with the use of modified live vaccines. Recombinant vaccines also provide a boost in antibody titers to more dogs than those in the group receiving modified live vaccines. ( For our feline patients, we also recommend a 3-year calici/rhinotracheitis/panleukopenia virus vaccine protocol. Feline leukemia, typically recommended for our outdoor cat population, is typically administered annually and is given intradermally in non-adjuvanted form and also with recombinant technology. This delivery method provides faster immune response and a greatly reduced risk of reaction. In addition, we utilize only the non-adjuvanted rabies vaccine for our feline friends. Adjuvants in vaccines have been linked to vaccine-induced fibrosarcomas. Avoiding adjuvants will significantly reduce the likelihood of developing a vaccine-associated sarcoma. There are a variety of non-core vaccines that may be considered based on your animal's lifestyle. We tailor each and every vaccine protocol to patient’s needs and owner’s preferences. Some of these include Leptospirosis, Bordetella Bronchiseptica, Lyme and Influenza. Please feel free to discuss any of these vaccines with your medical provider.


A blood test can be done to evaluate immunity to certain diseases, like parvovirus, distemper and rabies. Titer tests are among the tools that dog owners and veterinarians use to help minimize the risks of both infectious diseases and unnecessary vaccinations. Simply put, these tests can tell you if a previous vaccine is still protecting your dog. If it’s still working, you may not choose to or have to re-vaccinate.


The following guidelines from the American Heartworm Society mirror the opinion of our Doctors and staff at 360 Pet Medical.
  • Diagnostics: AHS recommends annual antigen and microfilaria testing.
  • Prevention: AHS recommends year-round administration of chemoprophylactic drugs to prevent heartworm disease, control pathogenic and/or zoonotic parasites, and enhance compliance, the latter being particularly important in light of the documented presence of resistant subpopulations.
EPIDEMIOLOGY Heartworm infection in dogs has been diagnosed around the globe, including all 50 of the United States, and is considered at least regionally endemic in each of the contiguous 48 states and Hawaii. The relocation of microfilaremic dogs and expansion of the territories of microfilaremic wild canids in other areas of the US continue to be important factors contributing to further dissemination of the parasite. Environmental changes created by humans, such the formation of “heat islands” due to urban sprawl, and changes in natural climatic conditions also have increased heartworm infection potential by creating microenvironments that support development of heartworm larvae, lenghtening the transmission areas and season.



360 Pet Medical is dedicated to providing the best care possible for your pet. We understand that that surgery can be a time of high anxiety for our pet parents. We are committed to providing a reassuring and compassionate experience for you and your pet. Your pet will receive the highest quality care from our team of trained veterinarians, specialists, including board-certified surgeons, nurses, and critical care experts.


Surgeries (soft-tissue/spays/neuters/etc.) are done in our state-of-the-art surgical suite equipped with electro-cautery and a heated surgical table. All surgical procedures consist of pre-anesthetic blood work, safe anesthetic protocols tailored to each pet, constant anesthetic monitoring (EKG, pulse oximetry, and temperature) by a veterinary technician, and hospitalization for the day---or even overnight care at PETS--depending on the procedure performed.


Dental disease is one of the most common problems older dogs and cats face today. It will affect 80-90% of all animals at some point during their lives. Dental infections can spread to the heart or other organs causing irreversible damage or even death, which makes dental care a must have to ensure the safety of your pet. Dr. Loni Odenbeck, Dr. Dawn McDonald and Dr. Ruth Stafford, have a special interest in and extensive training in advanced dental procedures. Some of which include: bonded sealants (sealing of uncomplicated tooth fractures to prevent pain, infection, and protect the tooth), closed root planing, application of Doxirobe gel (to slow the progression of periodontal disease), radio-frequency cautery to oral mass removals, and tooth extraction. Additionally, our doctors train and consult regularly with local dentist, Dr Tony Woodward of Montana Veterinary Dentistry.


Eye surgery also known as Ocular surgery, includes surgical procedures on the eye or the area immediately surrounding it, including the eyelids. A variety of procedures can be performed on-site at 360 Pet Medical. These include eyelid mass removals, laceration repairs, removal of abnormal eyelashes, etc.


At 360 Pet Medical we provide oncologic surgical options, which is the removal and management of tumors in your pet. Our approach to pets with cancer includes a complete health assessment so that pet owners can make the most educated decision about treatment options.

Pets are living longer and therefore, developing age related problems similar to humans. People are taking clues from their own ways of living healthier and translating that into their pet care. Many pet owners are feeding their pets a higher quality diet and providing their pets with supplements, which is can be very effective in preventative healthcare.

The most commonly used supplementary products for pets include those for strengthening the joints, protecting and conditioning the skin and hair coat, improving digestive health, and for overall well-being.

Supplements that are formulated for joint health typically include the ingredients glucosamine and chondroitin. These ingredients have been found to be extremely useful in treating arthritis in both humans and animals. Fish oil is a typical ingredient in skin and hair supplements. This can help with dry flaking skin. Antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E can be used to reduce inflammation and may even help to maintain cognitive function in older animals.

The 360 Pet Medical team will work with you to decide what supplements are going will be most effective for your pet.
