Oral Hygiene

Your pet's dental health is a part of his/her healthy foundation. Gingivitis and periodontal disease are a reality for your pet as much as they are for you!
Periodontal disease doesn't just affect your pets teeth, gums and the deterioration of the jaw bone, it impacts their entire general health.
The bacteria that is present with dental disease cir­culates through the blood stream and can cause damage to the heart, kidneys and liver.

Parvovirus Enteritis

Authored By:  Kathryn R. Krueger, DVM


What is Parvovirus?  

Parvovirus is a highly contagious disease spread by the fecal material of affected animals. The virus infects the walls of the intestines, causing the interior lining of the intestines to slough.  It is a serious disease, and can be over 90% fatal if untreated.  It causes vomiting, diarrhea (which is often bloody), lethargy (depression), pain, and life threatening dehydration.
