Despite what many pet owners may believe, dog breath is not just a nuisance, but also a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria, and over time leads to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened gums, and other common signs of dental disease, include: drooling, discomfort while chewing, and loose or missing teeth. Even using treats and chews to help control tartar are generally not enough to manage dental disease. Ask us about the best ways to control plaque and help protect your pet from dental disease.
Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet's health, because dental disease can be associated with other serious health problems such as heart disease and kidney disease. But how do you know if your pet has a healthy mouth? Let us examine your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine if there are any dental issues you should know about. After a brief visual examination, we may recommend a more detailed examination (which requires sedation), a dental cleaning, or options for at-home dental care.
Even if you think your pet’s teeth and gums are fine, we can offer expert advice to help you keep them that way! Dental health shouldn’t be taken for granted. Fortunately, many dental problems can be managed through at-home care and by bringing your pet to us for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings.
We want your pet to live a long, healthy life, and we understand that maintaining a healthy mouth is part of that. Your pet’s health is important to us, so let us help you with this commitment. Call today to discuss your pet’s dental care needs and how we can help!

Each year, thousands of pets go missing. Even if your pets wear a collar and identification tag, they can become damaged or broken. Even indoor pets find ways outside and get lost. If you’re relying on other forms of identification, you could be placing your pet at risk. Microchipping is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance of your pet returning safely.
As the name implies, microchips are tiny and placed underneath your pet's skin, and is a non-invasive one-time procedure. Microchips can be given to your pet at any age, young and old. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information about your pet, including owner name, address, and contact information. When a microchip is implanted, the pet owner is given a registration form to complete. Registering the number on the microchip includes your pet in a national pet recovery database. Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and animal control offices across the country are equipped with special electronic scanners that can detect the microchip and read the identification number. If a lost pet is picked up by animal control or found, a quick scan of the microchip reveals the identification number. A call to the pet recovery database alerts the microchip company that a lost pet has been identified. The pet owner can then be contacted.
