Stinky breath wafting around you when you smooch your favorite critter? How about that doggie or kitty smile not being as wide as it use to be? Sounds like it's time for your little one to come see our fabulous group of doctors for a through dental check-up.....
February may be the designated month for dental health but in reality all year long is check that mouth time! Not just a cosmetic issue, yellow teeth and bad breath can be a sign of serious disease, which may affect our little one's kidneys, liver, and heart. Did you know that oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets, with most dogs and cats becoming affected by age 3? So, how do you know your pet has a problem?
According to the AVMA website, the following issues may indicate dental disease:
Also, please be aware that some pets become cranky due to pain or discomfort when they have dental problems, and any changes in your little one's behavior should result in a visit to us.Also, always be careful when evaluating your pet’s mouth, because a painful animal may bite!
So, if you believe your pet may be having dental problems (they don't always show signs immediately!) please give us a call at 757-473-0111 and set up an appointment for an evaluation. You and your pet will be glad you did!
Thank you to everyone. I already thought Dr. Bean was an amazing vet when he sat on the floor with my kitties to do their exams, now I realize he cares about his patients on ALL levels, as well as their parents. I highly recommend this office.
They all were amazingly compassionate people, and truly were hurt from hearing the news. They also care for our Lesser Sulfur Crested Cockatoo that we still have and will for many years to come. They have helped with everything from checking her health after over 14 years of being at a vet clinic to getting her foods shifted over to a much more healthy diet.
Dr Hulls was very good with our 5 yr old Macaw. Explained to us very well everything he was doing or had to do. Will be bringing our Carl back when he's due...Thank You
My pet ate part of a rug and although I thought she had passed it, there was still someone her intestines. She had surgery and then we had some issues that made me nervous. The staff was wonderful when I was so stressed out and helpful when I came in (daily) with new issues.
Pet Care Veterinary Hospital has provided the BEST care for my dog. Since moving to Virginia Beach, 7 years ago, I went to 2 other veterinarian services before luckily finding Dr. Partlow and Dr. Hulls, who I credit for saving my dog's life and keeping him in perfect health. The care that the staff takes is just as if their animal patients are their very own pets. I couldn't love and trust Pet Care Veterinary Hospital more, and I highly recommend them!
