Bad breath isn’t just unpleasant – it can be unhealthy. Up to 80% of dogs and 70% of cats that do not receive proper dental may show signs of dental disease by the age of 3.What is dental disease?
Dental disease is a result of bacterial infection of the structures that support the teeth. While this is going on, your pet is fighting a constant battle with bacteria in the mouth. Plaque builds up on your pet’s teeth. Bacteria in the plaque leads to gum inflammation. The inflamed gums allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, bacteria travel throughout the body where they can negatively impact vital organs like the heart, liver and kidneys.
10 Warning Signs of Dental Disease in Pets include
Plaque or tartar buildup (yellow or brown crust on teeth)
Red, bleeding, and/or swollen gums
Fractured and/or loose teeth
Pawing at face
Difficulty chewing/trouble eating
Loss of appetite
Mouth is sensitive to touch
Lost interest in chew toys and/or treats
If you notice any of the signs mentioned above, your pet may be suffering from dental disease and its time for a dental exam.
A thorough dental cleaning includes removal of plaque and tartar and allows an examination of all teeth and surrounding tissue. We use general anesthesia to keep your pet free of discomfort.
Regular teeth brushing is the best home care. Dental diets such as Hills T/D (tooth diet) or Royal Canin dental diet can be great alternatives if you are unable to brush. Ask us about home dental options that fit your lifestyle.

Below are a few suggestions should you come across injured or orphaned wildlife. First, you need to determine if the wild animal is indeed injured or abandoned without putting yourself in harm’s way. Try not to have too much contact with the animal or to disturb the surroundings. If you are unsure, it is best that you leave it be and call a wildlife specialist to notify them about the animal and its location. Certain animals like rabbits and deer often leave their young alone for long periods throughout the day. If it appears healthy and well, do not disturb the animal.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 11, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CONTINUE TO SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
Note: Priority will be given to urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations.
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 204-269-8162. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you at the hospital entrance to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you at the entrance and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
