How often does my pet need to have their teeth cleaned? Is there anything I should be doing at home?
We will examine your pet's teeth during their annual exam to determine the best schedule for your pet. Just like people, individual pets develop tartar and oral disease at different rates. Many large dogs can go for one to three years without a cleaning at your animal clinic. However, most smaller breeds need a professional cleaning every six to twelve months. However, by brushing your pet's teeth at home, you can minimize how often your pet will need its teeth professionally cleaned.
Can my pet catch a cold or flu?
Although your pet can catch strep throat, he can't catch a cold or the flu from you. That does not mean your pet can't have an upper respiratory infection or intestinal disruptions. Coughing, sneezing, vomiting, and/or diarrhea can all be debilitating for your pet, and we recommend setting up an appointment with our animal clinic if your pet is suffering from these symptoms.
How often do you recommend performing blood work on my pets?
In addition to having an annual physical exam for your pet, we also recommend performing a yearly blood work test. This yearly exam checks your pet's kidneys, liver, blood sugar, and blood protein levels. It is very easy to administer these blood tests at the same time we perform the yearly heartworm test. For our senior pets, we may recommend some additional blood tests.
How can I make payments?
Payment is required at the time of service. We gladly accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards.
