Your pet’s mouth should be checked every year by a veterinarian to detect early signs of problems and ensure your pet’s mouth is healthy. You should have your pet’s mouth checked sooner if you notice any of these problems:
- bad breath
- broken or loose teeth
- extra teeth or retained baby teeth
- teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
- abnormal chewing, drooling or dropping food from the mouth
- reduced appetite or refusal to eat
- pain in or around the mouth
- bleeding from the mouth
- swelling in the areas surrounding the mouth
An x-ray can tell us a lot about why our pet isn’t feeling well or having certain symptoms. X-rays are often used to diagnose conditions such as:
- bladder stones
- fractured bones
- foreign body objects
- cancer spread in the lungs
- respiratory infections
- enlarged hearts
Advanced surgeries are surgeries that usually require a specialist to take the lead for the best outcome for your pet. A list of advanced surgeries include:
- • orthopedics (bones, joints, muscles)
- • soft tissue surgery (skin, body cavities, cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal/urogenital/respiratory tracts)
- • neurosurgery
- • joint replacement (total hip, knee and elbow replacement)
- • fracture repair
- • rescission surgery for cancerous masses
- • other common surgeries include: herniated disc treatment, kidney transplant, skin grafts, and complicated wound management.
Spay and Neuter
Spaying (female pets) and neutering (male pets) is a highly routine surgery that helps control the population and prevents overcrowding in shelters. There are also health benefits associated with spaying and neuter your animals. Spaying your pet will help prevent uterine infections and mammary tumors that are usually cancerous. Neutering your pet will prevent testicular and prostate cancers and has also been shown to improve behavior.
