Bad Dental Care = Pets in Pain

Over the years we have seen countless pet patients with severe and debilitating painful mouth conditions. Some drool constantly and some can barely manage to eat. Most suffer from mouth pain all the time. Think of yourself. Have you ever had a cold sore in your mouth or an infected tooth? You and I wouldn’t last a single day without seeking treatment and relief. Our pets deserve that same level of concern, compassion, care and urgency.

Dental disease is incredibly painful, as well as detrimental to overall health and happiness — in people and pets.

All small (Micro) dogs (under 20 pounds) and cats need their first preventive professional dental cleaning procedure at the age of 12 months and all large breed dogs at the age of 24 months. Annual professional dental cleaning is a must for all pets, just like humans. Unlike humans you cannot ask your pet which tooth is hurting them. Probing of if each and every teeth under sedation/anesthesia and full mouth dental X-rays are necessary to diagnose hidden dental disease. All micro dogs are known for periodontal disease.

We are now offering 10% off of professional dental cleaning until February 28, 2018. Only a few cases of dental procedures can be performed daily and we suggest that you call us to schedule your pet’s dental professional cleaning procedure appointment as soon as possible.

Pet story with a happy outcome.

Today a 12 year old Pomeranian patient was presented to our hospital with a history of inability to eat and having a malodorous painful mouth. Upon examination, patient was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 periodontal dental disease with multiple abscessed teeth. After 2 hours and 40 minutes long dental procedure we surgically extracted 28 teeth. Pain was controlled with oral nerve blocks and pain medication. This afternoon our patient went home with less pain, with a clean healthy mouth without the harmful bacteria.

We are elated to be part of a passionate team that made a difference in this pet’s life.

Protect your pets during cold weather. Just like people,... - 01/03/2018



Protect your pets during cold weather.

Just like people, pets’ cold tolerance can vary from pet to pet based on their coat, body fat stores, activity level, and health. Be aware of your pet’s tolerance for cold weather, and adjust accordingly. You will probably need to shorten your dog’s walks in very cold weather to protect you both from weather-associated health risks. Long-haired or thick-coated dogs tend to be more cold-tolerant, but are still at risk in cold weather. Short-haired pets feel the cold faster because they have less protection, and short-legged pets may become cold faster because their bellies and bodies are more likely to come into contact with cold ground. Pets with diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, or hormonal imbalances (such as Cushing’s disease) may have a harder time regulating their body temperature, and may be more susceptible to problems from temperature extremes. The same goes for very young and very old pets.

Presented in the best interest of our Pet patients.
