Bad breath is caused by bacteria and is the sign of an unhealthy mouth. If left untreated it can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar resulting in gingivitis, red gums and other dental disease. Eventually large pockets can form exposing roots causing your pet pain while chewing and can lead to the loss of teeth. Dental disease can also be associated with other more serious health problems such as heart and kidney disease. Our doctors examine your pet's teeth and gums to determine if there are any dental issues that should be taken care of. Sometimes simple at home dental care such as brushing teeth or change of diet is sufficient. However, when a more thorough examination is necessary, or cleaning and extractions, if needed are required, an anesthetic will be administered and our doctors and technicians will use the state-of-the-art Dentalaire equipment to provide for your pet's dental care. We will also polish their teeth and give them a fluoride treatment during the procedure.
Just as with people, our pet's health care needs change as they age due to progressive declines in their physical condition. Their nutritional needs, exercise requirements, mobility and comfort concern require modification to ensure they are provided the best quality of life available during their senior years. Regular wellness visits are important along with routine blood work and other routine diagnostic testing in order to monitor how your pet's health is responding to management strategies or changing with age. Thanks to advances in veterinary medicine our doctors are able to provide both preventive and therapeutic approaches to help our pets live longer and have a better quality of life than ever. Our older pets are wonderful companions and we are here to help you ensure that your pet is safe and happy throughout their senior years.
Our clinic prescribes therapeutic diets for various kinds of diseases.
While the majority of our lab work is sent out to a nationwide laboratory we have the flexibility to run urine and blood tests in-house.
Micro chipping your pet provides a permanent means of identification that is reliable and will not get lost, stolen or damaged. It is a simple procedure consisting of the implantation of a microchip about of a grain of rice under your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. The microchip number is registered under your name, address and contact information on a national pet recovery database. Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters and animal control offices are equipped with special scanners that detect the microchip and read the identification number. A simple phone call will alert the microchip company that a lost pet has been identified so the pet owner can be contacted and reunited with their pet.
