Every year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats, are euthanized. The good news is that responsible pet owners can make a difference. By having your dog or cat sterilized, you will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens. Early spaying of female dogs and cats can help protect them from serious health problems later in life such as uterine infections and breast cancer. Neutering your male pet can also lessen its risk of developing an enlarged prostate gland and testicular cancer. Contact our office about the most appropriate time to spay or neuter your pet based on its breed, age, and physical condition.
Does your pet have sour breath? That odor coming from your pet’s mouth could be more than a nuisance; it could signify a serious health risk with the potential to damage not only your pet’s teeth and gums but its internal organs as well. In addition to causing receding gums, tooth loss and significant pain, bacteria in the mouth enters the pets bloodstream and can affect their heart, liver and kidneys which can be life threatening. Contact our hospital for an appointment to discuss your pet’s dental care routine at home in addition to regular dental exams and professional dental cleanings.
