SUMMER is here and we have exciting news for our clients! Dr Phillip has slashed the price of having your pet's teeth cleaned! Not only are you saving big, but we will be giving our clients who have a dental cleanings FREE home care dental products!!!!
Here are some examples of severe periodontal disease before and after.
Why is dental cleaning so important? A professional dental cleaning removes not only the plaque and tartar on the teeth surfaces but also the bacteria under the gums. This eliminates potential sources of infection to the mouth and other organs and protects your pet from pain and tooth loss. We know that untreated periodontal disease can cause many health issues with your pets, and contribute to diseases that can potentially shorten their lives. Many of you worry about anesthesia and how the procedure will affect your pet. The anesthetics currently used are fast acting and safe, and most pets recover very quickly from being under for the procedure. Even older pets can safely undergo a dental cleaning with little adverse affects. Remember, it is imperative to have preanesthetic blood work done before a dental cleaning. If you have questions call us and speak with one of our friendly staff.

ALLERGY SEASON IS HERE AGAIN
Just like us our pets suffer from allergies. Both dogs and cats can be allergic to fleas, household dust and mold, outdoor agents such as grasses, trees, and even flowering plants, and even more frustrating the food they eat. It is often difficult to know what our pets are actually allergic to, and severe allergic issues need addressing by a veterinarian who specializes in these problems. Chronic licking, itching, and various types of body rashes and hot spots, as well as, ear problems will plague our pets if left untreated. Many times secondary infections occur and our pets will need antibiotics to clear these up. Don't ignore a pets scratching, and if caught early your pet can be treated very easily.
Warmer weather in Texas means Rattlesnakes!!! Don't let this happen to your dog. We have a vaccine that reduces the severity of rattlesnake bite should your pet be bitten. This vaccine reduces the severity of the affects of snakebite. Hot weather in Central Texas brings out the snakes and even heavily populated areas are not immune to infestations. Protect your pet - start your vaccinations!
