Proper dental care is an extremely important part of your pet’s overall health. Dental Disease is the most common health issue of pets today; it affects 85% of cats and dogs over 4 years of age. Many forms of dental disease exist below the gum line and are not detectable without a thorough cleaning under anesthesia. Untreated infections of your pet’s teeth and gums can lead to abscesses, heart, liver or kidney disease

Canine respiratory outbreak- There have been news reports regarding hotspots of outbreaks of respiratory infections in dogs in which a small number have been serious enough to result in fatal pneumonia. Most of the cases have been reported in Oregon, Colorado and New Hampshire and some cases in California. We have not experienced any uptick in respiratory illness in dogs at this time. We will keep you posted. A recommendation is to keep all dogs updated on their Bordetella and canine influenza vaccines since those are two respiratory infections that we do have vaccinations for. You can avoid large group gatherings of dogs at this time.

We are seeing a number of patients with ticks this time of year. They can be hard to find for a while when there is thick fur. Make sure to pick up Bravecto, Nexguard or Simparia Trio to get rid of them. Check out our online pharmacy or pick up from us.

Cats do ingest scrunchies. Contra Costa Animal Services just removed this from a cat's gastrointestinal tract.
Please be kind to customer service employees. Here is an article that describes the veterinary field in the past 2 1/2 years. It has been hectic. We try to get patients in as quickly as possible and return calls and emails as efficiently as humanly possible. Many veterinary hospitals are being sold to venture capitalists Large corporate online pharmacies are also taking a large part of our time to verify prescriptions and approve with zero profit. We are privately and locally owned, which is very rare now. . So you get human beings who care, get to know you, and want to help you. So please try to be extra patient with our staff, who wear their masks all day so we can stay open for you. Please do not come in sick or without a mask. Help us stay open so we can help you too.
