DENTAL DISEASE!


20% OFF DENTAL CLEANING-FEBRUARY 2019.


Dental disease is the number one health issue affecting dogs and cats. Just like humans pets need professional deep dental cleaning (root planing) every 6 to 12 months. Neglecting dental health can also cause painful health issues, including loss of teeth, liver infection, heart and kidney failure, bone destruction, upper respiratory infection, and eye infection uveitis/glaucoma.

Unfortunately, your pet cannot tell you that he/she is suffering from a toothache and most pets continue to eat even with oral pain. Dental disease is also known as the “silent killer” of pets, and this condition can cause bacteria to enter the bloodstream and infect the heart, liver, and kidneys, shortening your pet’s life by two to five years (14 to 35 HUMAN YEARS).

Postponing routine professional dental cleaning for your pet may result in very expensive oral surgery at a later date. Routine annual cleanings also help to avoid permanent damage to your pet’s vital organs, including the heart, liver, and kidneys. During the month of February 2019 we are offering 20% OFF DENTAL CLEANING. Bring this letter to obtain your 20% off discount. Please contact Barbara or Melisa at (561) 439-7900 to schedule your pet’s dental procedure.


We want our pet patients to move from sick care to health care. Dental procedures are scheduled from Monday through Friday mornings. Only a limited number of dentals can be performed daily, and we urge you to make your pet’s appointment as soon as possible.

KNOW YOUR BREED!


DOBERMAN PINSCHER


HISTORY:


The Doberman Pinscher is a German breed related to the Rottweiler, German

Pinscher and the Black and Tan Terrier of England. The breed is named for

Louis Dobermann of Apolda in Thueringer, Germany. In 1870 a larger dog was

produced by crossing the German Shepherd with the Rottweiler. This breed,

the Dobermann Pinscher, was used as a guard dog and watch dog. Later, Otto

Goeller added the Manchester Terrier to this cross. In 1899 Goeller organized

the Pinscher Club in Apolda. In 1921 the Doberman Pinscher Club of American

was founded. Not only is the Doberman Pinscher known as a guard dog, but it

is also used by the police and in war.


APPEARANCE:


Size: Height 26-28 inches (males) and 26 inches (females)


Weight: 70-75 lbs. (males) and 60-65 lbs. (females)


Color: Black, red, blue or fawn; all colors have sharply defined rust

markings above each eye, on muzzle, throat, forechest, legs and feet and

below tail.


Eyes: Almond-shaped, moderately deep set, medium to darkest brown in black

dogs; in reds and blues, the color of the iris should blend with that of the

markings, but should not be lighter than that of the markings.



Body Structure: Medium size; solid, square body; compactly built, muscular

and powerful. The chest is broad, with ribs well-sprung. A long,

wedge-shaped head with erect and cropped or folded ears. Very elegant in

appearance; aristocratic.


Hair Coat: Short, fine, close-lying coat gives the appearance of smoothness

and class.


Possible Health Problems: Basically a healthy breed; some dogs may develop

hip dysplasia, bleeding disease, congenital eye defects, bloat, skin disease,

hypothyroidism; bone and liver disease occasionally occur. Puppies with a

bluish tinge to their coats may be affected by skin problems.


POSITIVE QUALITIES:


Short hair coat requires minimal grooming. The Doberman Pinscher is easily

obedience trained and housebroken. They are very loyal and obedient to their

families.

Did you know?


We perform gallbladder removal surgery at our Summit Boulevard Animal Hospital!


There are many reasons why we need to remove a gallbladder in a pet patient.


1. Gallbladder stones-Gall stones can occur in any breed of dog, but are more likely to become serious issues when it obstructs the flow of bile.

2. By the time a gallbladder mucocele is diagnosed, up to 50% of pets experience a rupture. If this occurs, bile will then leaks into the abdominal cavity and can cause a severe and life-threatening condition.

3. Chronic cholecystitis, an inflammation of the gallbladder and biliary tract.


Sometimes pets gallbladders just go wrong and they need attention, treatment, or removal. Just like people, pets can live normal, happy, and healthy lives without their gallbladders.


Attached please find a picture of one of our patients, Chip, who had gallbladder removal surgery last week and he is doing great! 😃
