The iM3 Vet-Tome offers a paradigm
shift in the way we, as veterinarians,
extract teeth in our patients.”
The Vet-Tome turned up this week and I got to pull it out
today for a slab fracture of the upper carnassial PM4 in a
35kg Chow Chow. With absolute L-plate learner speed
and due caution, the entire extraction took 12 minutes.
I felt in complete control the whole time, zero sweating,
and my nurses tell me my language remained civil the
entire time. There is no doubt the trauma to surrounding

The new Vet-Tome has been fantastic for us. Today, I had
a severe gingivo-stomatitis cat booked in for multiple
extractions. I had been dreading the procedure - but
it was a dream, and so much less traumatic for the
patient: full unilateral cheek-teeth extraction (upper and
lower jaw) and all incisors today in under an hour; no
fractured teeth, no need to create gingival flaps. All-in-all
a pleasure to do. I’m looking forward to doing the other
side in a couple of weeks. We are delighted.
I would recommend this machine to every practice
Really reduced operating time for us, and increased
therefore patient safety. A win-win”.
