Wellness Care / Vaccinations
From those crazy puppy and kitten moments, all the way to their golden years, we have your pet covered from nose to tail. Dogs and cats need different levels of care throughout their lives. We’ve created packages to help you give your pet the best care at every age.
Do you brush your pets teeth every day? For most of us the answer is NO WAY! Your pets mouth is a gateway to many other health concerns. Regular dental check-ups, x-rays and cleanings, can help keep infection and inflammation away from not only the teeth and gums, but the rest of the body as well.
5 Signs Of Dental Pain In Pets
Your pets can’t tell you when they’re suffering from a toothache or other types of pain. If you notice any of these signs, contact your veterinarian to schedule an exam.
No signs at all.
Dogs, cats and other companion animals, such as rabbits, rarely show signs of dental pain. This is a survival mecha-nism, an instinctual behavior that our domesticated animals have in common with their wild ancestors
The odor is a byproduct of the bacterial metabolic process. In pets with periodontal disease, there is more bacteria in the mouth, and so the odor increases. “Doggy breath” or “tuna breath” is not normal and needs to be evaluated.
Chewing on one side of the mouth, dropping food, run-ning away from the food dish, crying when yawning, hiding, not grooming themselves and acting “grumpy” are all signs of dental pain. you know your pet better than anyone, so look for abnormal behaviors.
Bleeding from the mouth is usually due to periodontal disease, but it could also be evidence of fractured teeth,
lacerations or ulcers on the tongue or gum tissue or the presence of an oral mass. Look for thick, ropey saliva,
spots of blood found on toys or beds or drops of blood in the water or food dish. lithe periodontal disease is severe enough, you may notice bleeding from the nose or bloody discharge when your pet sneezes.
Once our veterinary team addresses your pet’s oral issues, your pooch may show he’s feeling better by acting like a puppy again or your kitty might seek extra attention.
