February is Dental Health Month
We think that dental health is important year round, but in February, we try to highlight it! We will be offering a 5% discount off of our dental packages. If you are uncertain if your pet needs a dental, or which dental grade your pet is, we can look in their mouth for you for free! Most of the time, we think of dental issues when we smell bad breath, or see that they're not eating as well, but dental tarter can cause problems in other organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys but getting into the bloodstream through the gum tissue. Questions? Please don't hesitate to call us! We will also be handing out free dental treats to those who visit us in February while supplied last.
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
We have had several of our canine patients come up positive for Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever recently! This is a disease that is spread through ticks. While there are many different signs, we have seen fever and lethargy as being top of the list! If not caught and treated, this disease can be fatal to your dog! Please make sure that your dog is on a flea/tick preventative that gets the American Dog Tick (Dermacentor variabilis). Let us know if you're worried about this for your dog!
