Dental care is very important to your pet's health. This February, we are joining the cause of National Pet Dental Month to spread the word of the importance or your pet's dental hygiene. Unfortunately, plaque starts to form shortly after it is removed, and if the plaque is not removed it will harden into calculus (tartar) which has to be removed by scaling under anesthesia. The associated bacteria under the gum line can travel to the Liver, Kidneys and Heart. Regular at home dental care can help prevent dental disease by removing plaque as it forms and preventing calculus from forming. In addition to providing dental cleaning and treatment of diseased teeth, we can discuss with you how to prevent dental disease by keeping your pet's teeth clean at home.
At Animal hospital in Fairfield we offer routine dental cleanings (scaling and polishing) with full mouth digital radiographs. We first preform a pre-op exam before being placed under full anesthesia for a dental cleaning. This way we are able to discuss your pet's specific dental state and inform you of any recommendations before or during the procedure. Dental disease can begin with your pet having bad breath, tooth loss, or painful chewing; call us for an appointment if you notice any of these signs.
Other special dates in February:
02/20/2016 Love your pet day
02/23/2016 Dog biscuit day
To celebrate we want to offer our clients a 10% discount on our dental prophylaxis package!

Did anyone add a new pet to the family this holiday season? If so, all of the staff at Animal Hospital in Fairfield we would love to meet them.
January was chosen as National Train Your Dog Month because dogs and puppies are commonly purchased or adopted during the holidays. Sometimes, it can be hard to know if you've made the right decision by taking on a rambunctious puppy. Proper training can be the key to a wonderful relationship between you and your pet. This can also decrease the chances of puppies needing to be re-homed for behavioral issues. Along with your personal New Years resolution, let us help you make a resolution to also learn something new about training your puppy. Knowing where to start can be the trickiest part of the process. Please call us so that we can provide you with a current list of recommended trainers.
Pros to training:
- Strengthens you and your pet's bond and reinforces confidence that you are their leader.
- Decreases behavioral/anxiety issues such as chewing, barking, and potty training.
- Adds a safety factor to your training process avoiding fear and consistent obedience.
Animal Hospital in Fairfield also offers convenient Puppy Packages that include free exam fees for 6 months. This gives you the opportunity to bring your fur baby in, even when something might not necessarily be wrong. When your pet has positive visits at the hospital full of cuddles and perhaps some treats, they are less likely to grow fearful of the environment.
