Pet Dental Care

Periodontal disease is one of the most common diseases in cats and dogs. Over 85% of dogs and cats have some type of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease simply means that the gums and bone that hold the teeth in place are being destroyed by oral bacteria. This preventable disease is the number one diagnosed disease in our pets, yet many animals suffer needlessly.

Degenerative Joint Disease & Pain Management

Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) is a debilitating condition commonly seen in small animals. It is characterized by loss of hyaline cartridge matrix and death of chondrocytes. It is more common in dogs than cats, although both species can be affected. DJD may be a result of the normal aging process but is more likely a result of disease processes in the joint.

Home Dental Care

Home dental care for your cat or dog has the same goal as home dental care for yourself, to remove dental plaque. Plaque is the sticky, whitish film with the bad taste and offensive odor that accumulates inside the mouth. Plaque is about 85% bacteria and will mineralize to form tartar. Plaque accumulation causes infection in the gums (gingivitis) and of the bone around the teeth (periodontitis).Your cat or dog depends on you to provide home dental care and regular professional examinations. Use one or more of the following methods, as recommended by your veterinarian.

Chemotherapy

When a beloved animal is given a diagnosis of cancer, the effect on the animal’s family can be devastating, marked by confusion and sadness. It is important to understand the treatments that are available for an animal’s cancer. The veterinarian may recommend chemotherapy, either alone or in combination with other treatments, as part of your pet’s cancer management. The thought of chemotherapy strikes fear in the hearts of animal owners, based on the human experience of undergoing chemotherapy. Everyone’s lives are touched by cancer in some way, and yet an animal’s experience will be different from a human’s experience, in several ways.
