How do I know when my pet needs a dental performed?
Bad breath, inflamed gums, plaque and tartar buildup, and loose teeth are all of great concern when it comes to the health of your animal’s mouth. If you notice any of these signs, please bring your pet in for a dental checkup or schedule a dental cleaning. If your pet’s teeth are not in need of a cleaning at the time of the checkup, we can give you recommendations to help maintain your pet’s overall mouth health such as helpful treats/toys, teeth brushing, and other pet safe dental products. If your animal is at greater risk of complications during anesthesia, we have products that can help improve mouth health and remove plaque and tartar buildup without performing a dental cleaning.
Should my dog be on heartworm medication?
Yes. Heartworm disease is very easy to prevent but very difficult and even life threatening to treat. We recommend a monthly heartworm preventative be given for the entire year, throughout the course of your dog’s life.
How often should my pet see the vet?
We recommend yearly exams, and sometimes more frequent visits depending on the health of your pet. In an annual Wellness Exam, we will discuss the changing needs of your pet and make recommendations based on their current age and lifestyle.
