A Tired Dog is a Happy Dog
No species on earth varies as much as the domestic dog. Dogs can weigh two pounds or two hundred pounds....
5 Ways to Protect Your Dogs Hearing
The acuity of your family dog’s hearing far surpasses that of humans. Hearing is a critical sense to dogs, and when diminished, will increase dependency on the sense of smell. . .
New Kitten Suggestions
More Athens, GA households have dogs than cats, but cats far outnumber dogs as pets. How is this possible? Because many cat lovers believe that when it comes to feline friends, one is simply not enough. Single-dog households are routine, but with cats, the more the merrier!
January 2015 Newsletter
Happy New Year from Boulevard Animal Hospital!
February is Pet Dental Health Month The American Veterinary Medical Association reminds pet owners that brushing their pet’s teeth is good for both their pet’s health and their own budgets. One of the most common problems veterinarians see in pets is dental disease, and unfortunately, these issues can become serious if untreated. Dental infection can spread to the heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver and suddenly become life threatening. Practicing good dental hygiene at home, in addition to regular dental cleanings by your veterinarian, is one of the most efficient and cost-effective way to keep your pets healthy, comfortable and pain-free. Signs which may indicate that your pet may have dental disease include:
- Bad breath, nasal discharge, or bleeding from the mouth
- Recent decrease in energy
- Drooling or dropping food from the mouth
- Loss of appetite or loss of weight
- Loose or discolored teeth or teeth covered in tartar
- Your pet seems uncomfortable when his mouth is touched
- Take your pet to get a dental exam. Your pet’s teeth and gums are examined each year as part of his/her annual physical exam at BAH.
- Start an at-home regimen. BAH recommends using nutritional supplements such as CET or Purina Dental Chews and implementing a regular teeth brushing schedule to help remove plaque and tartar from your pet’s teeth.
- Schedule dental cleanings. Take your pet for regular dental checkups and schedule cleanings as recommended by your veterinarian.
