Dental care is an important part of your pet’s health as more than 85% of dogs and cats by 2 years of age suffer from periodontal disease. Bad breath is usually the first sign of this condition. The same bacterium that causes bad breath, if left untreated, can spread through the blood stream and damage the kidneys, heart, and other organs. Other signs of periodontal disease include bleeding gums; loss of appetite; pawing at the face; irritability, lethargy, and depression. The good news is this can all be prevented through routine veterinary dental care.
Plessis Veterinary Hospital offers a full range of pet dental services including complete prophylactic cleaning, ultrasonic scaling, polishing, fluoride and application of a barrier sealant, which creates an invisible barrier to help prevent plaque and tartar buildup. We can also perform tooth extractions and oral surgery should either be deemed necessary. Our complete dental care services are designed to provide a lifetime of good oral health to your pet.

A pet microchip can save your pet’s life!!! Over 10 million pets are lost every year, and without identification, 90% don’t return home? Having a microchip inserted into your pet is an excellent way to increase the chances of your pet being returned to you, if lost or stolen. Microchips are permanent and easy to implant. Microchips are about the size of a grain of rice and last for the lifetime of your pet. It cannot be removed like tags or collars. Although microchips can be implanted at any age, young puppies and kittens can receive microchips while they are being spayed or neutered. Even indoor pets can get outside accidentally and get lost, so if you’re relying on other forms of identification, you could be placing your pet at risk. Microchip is a safe, effective way to help ensure your pet’s return if the unthinkable happens. Please speak with one of our Customer Care Representatives or your veterinarian about microchipping your pet!!!
