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!

 

    

 

 

It is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care to the Athens Community throughout the life of your pet. Our services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventive care for young, healthy animals; early detection and treatment of disease as your companion animal ages; and medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime.read more

Happy New Year from Boulevard Animal Hospital!

Welcome...
We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Harriet Cooper will be joining the Boulevard Animal Hospital team. Dr. Harriet Cooper was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Her childhood was happily spent playing soccer, riding horses, digging in the dirt, and reading, most often in the company of a family dog. She attended college at the University of Vermont, and earned a BA in English Literature before returning to school to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine. In 2002 she graduated cum laude from the University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine. She practiced in Versailles, Kentucky and Atlanta, before returning to Athens with her family. Over the last two years Dr. Cooper has taken time from her house call practice to fill in as needed at Boulevard Animal Hospital. She is delighted to become a more permanent member of our staff. We believe that Dr. Cooper will be an excellent fit at Boulevard Animal Hospital, as she is a compassionate, kind, and talented veterinarian, and we ask you to join us in offering her a warm and enthusiastic welcome!

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


Three Simple Steps to Dental Care:
Pet owners can brush up on their four-legged friends’ oral care by following three simple guidelines outlined by the American Veterinary Dental Society:
  • 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.

BAH Dental Health Month Special
In honor of Pet Dental Health Month, Boulevard Animal Hospital is offering a discount of $40 on all dental cleanings performed during the month of February! Pets will also receive a free CET Finger Brush & Tooth Paste Kit and a complimentary technician follow-up exam one month after their cleaning.

*If you are not sure whether your pet needs a dental cleaning, please call us to schedule a complimentary walk-back exam and dental evaluation during January.

We encourage all pet owners to make a New Year’s Resolution to begin Pet Dental Health Care at home and start brushing your pet’s teeth daily… remember, a healthy pet is a happy pet!

How does a loving pet owner know if dental care is needed, and where can a pet owner go for advanced dental care?
