Have you noticed that your dog or cat has foul breath? That odor may indicate a health problem that could eventually affect their internal organs and long-term health. Periodontal disease is one of the most common conditions affecting pets today. The results of the disease are preventable by having your pet’s teeth cleaned on a periodical basis.

While under anesthesia, your pet will receive a thorough exam and cleaning which involves removing all tartar and scale, as well as extracting any infected teeth.

February is National Cat Health Month

The month of February has been designated as National Cat Health Month.  We all love our furry felines and want them to be healthy 12 months out of the year. The following helpful tips will go a long way in keeping your kitties healthy and happy.

1. Have your pet checked yearly by a veterinarian and make sure all vaccinations are up-to-date.

2. Prevent your cat from becoming obese. Obesity can lead to other health issues such as diabetes. Special diet prescription foods are available if a veterinarian suggests that your cat needs to shed a few pounds.

3. Good dental health is important. Cats can have loose, decayed or infected teeth that may cause pain and lead to other health problems. An occasional teeth cleaning might be recommended. If so, your cat will be sedated for the procedure.

4. Keep your cat safe by keeping him indoors at night, and away from any toxic cleaning products or plants.

If you notice any unusual behavior or tiredness, it would be advisable to have your cat examined by a veterinarian. Our kitties can live a long, healthy life with a little tender loving care and annual check-ups.
