Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Nobody wants a pet with bad breath! However, it’s not the smell that concerns us, as much as the disease that goes along with it! We work with our clients to provide the best possible dental care program that suits their needs, lifestyle and budget. Our goal is to prevent the heart disease, kidney failure, and chronic infection that shortens our pets lives and makes them uncomfortable. We have many techniques we can show our clients and various products and services that can meet everyone’s needs!
What type of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?
We focus on preventative care, providing services and products that will keep your pet’s teeth white and bright! Our technicians and staff are highly trained and capable of showing every client the best approach to dental care for their pets. For the pets that will not cooperate for daily care and maintenance, we offer general anesthetic and full dental prophylactic treatment and extractions (when needed), using the best anesthetic monitoring tools available and dedicated technicians.
How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?
Ideally, brush every day!
Why is oral and dental health important?
Would you want to be any age and living with dental pain? Would you want to be kissed by anyone, with two legs or four legs, with a horribly smelly and infected mouth? Oral and dental health is part of looking after the animals in our family and our care. Just like with people, your pets can suffer from many of the same complications if they do not have proper dental care. With the right kind of care, we can detect dental disease that affects not only the mouth but can lead to more serious health problems impacting the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 15, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
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 519-759-3031. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside 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 outside, 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".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
