Want your Pet to live longer?
Book a Dental Exam.

The single greatest health issue facing most pets is poor oral health. Pets in good dental health live an average of two years longer than those with dental disease. We want you to help your pet avoid the pain, health problems, and shortened lifespan that result from poor dental care.

Did You Know?

Dogs and Cats both have “baby teeth”, just like humans. As in humans, these teeth usually fall out on their own, but when your pet is here to be spayed or neutered we check to see if any have been improperly retained.

Does your pet have dental disease?

  • Is there brown buildup around the teeth or along the gum line?
  • Are the gums red, swollen, or bleeding?
  • Are there gaps where teeth are missing?
  • Is your cat or dog over two years old and has never had a dental exam?
  • Does your pet’s breath smell?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, your pet likely has significant dental health issues. Call or email us to book a dental exam and put your pet on track to good oral health.

Introducing Email Reminders!

In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, and to make reminders as convenient as possible for our clients, over the next few months, we will be transitioning from a paper mail reminder system to email reminders for all medical and vaccine reminders.

To be sure that these important emails don't get sent to the spam or junk folder in your email program, you should update your address book to include "".

If you use Gmail, you may find that these reminders initially go to the Promotions tab. To ensure that future reminders go to your Primary tab, or any other tab you designate, simply drag the initial reminder to the appropriate tab, or right click on it, and select the tab you want. In either case, Google will ask you if you want the change to apply to to future emails, and you can select “yes”.

Watch your inbox for upcoming reminders!
