Why is a thorough dental cleaning important for all pets?

A thorough dental cleaning is more than just removing the hard, brown-colored and ugly-looking tartar that is visible. What is going on under the gum line is critically important to the long term health of the tooth and your pet.

When the gums become diseased, the bacteria can go directly from the mouth into the general bloodstream and travel to the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, brain and joints, where they can cause irreparable damage over time. Bacteria contributes to periodontal disease, which causes the breakdown of the attachment of the tooth to the jaw, in addition to stinky breath.

With regular professional veterinary dental cleaning, a pet can be kept kissable. Dental disease is also known to cause the early demise of pets.

During the month of August, we are offering 20% off of professional veterinary dental cleaning. Only a limited number of professional dental cleanings can be performed daily and we encourage pet owners to schedule their pet’s dental appointment early.

Minimize Your Risk of Catching Internal Parasites From Your Pet:

Internal parasites like hookworms, tapeworms and roundworms aren’t just a problem for pets — humans can be exposed to or infected by them, too. These parasites are considered zoonotic, meaning they can be passed between animals and people. If you’re still skeptical that you could be affected, consider this alarming statistic: According to the United States Center for Disease Control, approximately 14 percent of people in the U.S. have antibodies to roundworms, suggesting that tens of millions of people may have been exposed to the parasites.

We routinely check all our pet patients for intestinal parasites every 6 months to protect our pet patients and also their human family members.

Did you know?

We are an accredited animal hospital by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

AAHA is well known for the standard of Veterinary Excellence. AAHA was established in 1933 by the leaders in the veterinary profession . To become accredited, animal hospitals must undergo regular comprehensive evaluations by AAHA veterinary experts who evaluate the animal hospital on approximately 900 standards of veterinary care. Only about 15 out of 100 animal hospitals have obtained this accreditation in the United States and Canada. Our animal hospital has been accredited since 1991 for the last 27 years. We are proud to be an AAHA accredited animal hospital.
