Thousands of animals live in shelters across North Carolina, and their numbers only swelled after Hurricane Florence hit with a vengeance. The folks who work at these facilities are driven by compassionate hearts and the desire to give cats, dogs, and other critters a new chance at life. They rely on their communities for the resources they need to properly care for animals. What can you do to help out?
Thanks to improved medical care and nutrition, our pets are living longer and healthier than ever! As our pets age, they become more likely to develop arthritis and age related diseases. The best thing you can do for your older pet is to take a proactive role in their pets health care.
According to the American Veterinary Dental College, periodontal disease, also known as dental diseases, is the most common clinical condition occurring in adult dogs and cats, and by three years of age, most dogs and cats have some evidence of periodontal disease. Unfortunately, periodontal disease goes beyond bad breath and can present multiple problems in the oral cavity and internal organs. When your pet comes in for a dental cleaning, we're proud to be able to offer digital dental xrays. Dental xrays give our veterinarians the opportunity to make important diagnoses.
