SPAYING AND NEUTERING YOUR PET:
All pets that are not to be used for breeding should be spayed (female) and neutered (males). It is best to do this between 5-6 months of age, although it can be done anytime later also. By spaying your female dog or cat, you eliminate future complications like pyometra (pus in the uterus), mammary cancer, unwanted pregnancies etc. Also, you won't have to deal with vaginal bleeding when she comes in heat. Most importantly, she will live healthier & longer life. Similarly, neutering makes males much more friendly and docile. It helps to eliminate aggression and urine marking behavior. It eliminates chances of prostate and testicular cancer. It is the most responsible thing to do for your pet.
 
DENTAL HEALTH:
Pets need dental care just like people do. All pets should get their teeth brushed at least three times a week and should get a mouth wash at least once a day. Many pets are prone to getting dental tartar and gingivitis. This can be easily treated in hospital. The pet is given a basic blood test (pre anesthesia blood test). After reviewing the results, we will sedate the pet and clean the teeth with an Ultrasonic machine. Then the teeth may be polished and treated with iodine. The pet comes out of sedation in an hour or so and is sent home the same day with mouth wash, pain killers if needed, antibiotics and brushing kit. Some pets get T/d, a special diet that helps to maintain tartar free teeth. Remember, gingivitis is a serious condition and can lead to heart disease and kidney disease, resulting in lowered quality of life and shortening of life span of the pet. We recommend dentistry at least once a year for all pets. While dentistry is being performed, each tooth is examined carefully, and very loose teeth that are infected and hence pose a health risk, are extracted.
