Ongoing oral hygiene is an important practice and can also be an accurate indicator of overall health. We encourage pet owners to brush their pet’s teeth and to also administer dental chews. There are times however when a patient may require on-site dental care, so we are equipped to work with issues like a fractured tooth, tooth root abscess, extraction and more. If you notice that you pet is having trouble chewing, eating, swallowing or is displaying discomfort, this could be a dental issue. Pets also often work to avoid showcasing signs of pain, so it’s important to pay close attention if you notice any abnormal behaviors in your pet.
However, nutritional needs can be confusing. You know this especially if you’ve heard of Gluten free diets, Raw food diets and others. Different pets will require a different diet, depending on their life stage, preference and other factors. We can help you to identify the preferences of your pet and which dietary preferences will work for them best.
If you notice a change in the diet of your pet, including a suppressed appetite or overeating, please let us know. Our veterinarians and staff are happy to check on your pet and help to determine which diet will be the best for them moving forward.
We highly recommend taking this pro-active step to better ensure the long-term safety and protection of your pet. Please ask us about this service during your next appointment, and we’ll be happy to answer any and all questions that you may have.
