Vaccinations & Wellness Care

Vaccinations are very important for your pet’s health and are typically given yearly in adult pets. Puppies and kittens should be started at 6-8 weeks of age and receive a series of 3-4 vaccinations. Dog and cat wellness care includes making sure your pet is getting monthly heartworm medicine, vaccinations, a proper diet for the age of the pet as well as good flea and tick control.

This unit allows us to perform the most basic dental cleaning with polishing as well as the most sophisticated tooth extractions. Our drill and tooth sectioning hand piece allows us to carefully cut and remove the most infected tooth and to drill out any remaining tooth roots or other pathology located in the mouth. Our compressed air and water flush handle piece as well as the fiber optic light on our drill ensures that we have a clean and visible area to work on ensuring that the best possible job can be done in the delicate procedure of tooth sectioning and extraction.

Most dogs and cats need a dental cleaning at 5-7 years of age and every 2-3 years after that. The tartar on the teeth is a composite of mineral from saliva, bacteria and food particles. This is what we see initially as soft plaque but then hardens into tartar which then must be cleaned under general anesthesia with an ultra-sonic scaler. At this time that the pet is under anesthesia tooth extractions are done as well as any oral surgery that is needed. Antibiotics are crucial after dental and sometimes before as bacteria from the mouth will settle on the heart, kidneys and liver through the bloodstream.

A good dental cleaning is one of the fastest ways to improve your pets health and your pets vitality. Call us today for a free evaluation of your pet’s teeth.
