"In 2001 a very special little kitten came to stay at our house named Emma. She weighed in at a whopping 2 ½ pounds. When she was about 9 months old she began vomiting and wouldn’t eat. The doctors at Piney Creek Square Veterinary Clinic took x-rays, but nothing showed up on them. She was losing weight, and she was thin by nature anyway, so everyone was worried about her. Dr. Behrns came to the rescue and performed emergency surgery on our little girl. She found an almond trying to pass into Emma’s stomach. Of course, it would not have shown up on an x-ray. Thank you, Dr. Behrns, for saving Emma’s life."
Why do dogs and cats need regular dental care? To keep them healthy, of course! You see the dentist for a cleaning every six months and most pets require a cleaning at least once a year. If you keep your pet’s teeth and gums clean and healthy, he/she will be less likely to have serious problems such as tooth loss or bacterial infection later on.
At Piney Creek Square Integrative Veterinary Medicine, we use the latest innovations in veterinary dental care such as ultrasonic cleaning and digital dental radiographs to give your furry family member a healthy smile – and to keep the stinky dog breath out of yours.
Additionally, Dr. Kate Dohse has received advanced training in extraction techniques and the latest periodontal treatments to minimize pain and time required under anesthesia. We even have a wide array of home dental care products to keep their mouth healthy in between cleanings.
