Dietary Tips

Dietary Tips

  • Choose your dog food carefully, follow AAFCO guidelines, see our website nutrition page for a complete list of the guideline.
  • Eating correctly affects dental health
  • We have diets on file for the difficult eaters
  • We post two new recipes a month for homemade treats
  • Read sometime about the importance of dental health - plaque and bacteria affect everything, especially general well-being!

Choose a food that is correct for your pet's dental state - don't let someone tell you THEY HAVE TO EAT DRY KIBBLE - they need to eat what will help them eat at a normal pace, chew correctly and thoroughly and enjoy what is in the bowl.

Here are a couple of sites that help animals eat better through a do-it-yourself toy and game system.

  • Remember eating at the correct pace helps the pet in so many ways!
  • Enrich Feeding time for you cat, Make a puzzle feeder

Dental Cleanings and FYI

We have always taken pride in that we offer low-cost dental procedures (ultrasonic scaling and polishing). We have even been asked " why are they so cheap (my least favorite word). During a dental at our clinic, the pet is protected with a thorough exam, high quality sedative, tubes and monitors. We do not feel dentals should be cost-prohibitive. That said, we are going up by $10.00 per dental to cover the increase in cost that we have incurred in dental supplies, therefore' TAKE ADVANTAGE THIS MONTH!!!

Case of the month:

On December 31st of 2018 Charlie Henderson of Bushland, TX and his son CC Henderson were driving down a farm to market road, enjoying their day when they looked over to see a K9 Sully Sullenberger trapped in the middle of a frozen pond. They called to him, but quickly realized the dog was dangerously stranded on the frozen pond. They went to their house and grabbed a rope and a small metal boat. CC put the metal boat on the partially frozen pond to try and slide across the ice to the dog, but the ice began to crack, so they had to rope the dog and pull him through the ice-cold water. They brought Sully to the clinic soaking wet with giant mounds of ice frozen to his head, shoulders, and hips. Icicles hung from his tail; apparently, he spent time in the frozen pond. He was unconscious at the time of arrival to the clinic. His temperature was too low to read on thermometer. We wrapped him in multiple blankets, set an IV catheter, ran fluids through a fluid warmer, and had a technician blow dry him on a low setting. We started at the appendages and then slowly began to dry the body. At 93 degrees he began to show signs of life. We continued to slowly warm him. When we were finally able to put him in bed his temperature read 95 degrees which is conducive to life. We administered appropriate medications for mild shock and suspected pulmonary edema. 12 hours later Sully was back to normal and on his way to a full recovery. His family came to see him and brought along his sister. Although, Sully was very weak and tired, he was still very happy to see his family. He went home with normal kidney function as well as normal behavior both mentally and physically.

Point of case, in the cases of hypothermia, you must raise the temperature of the patient very slowly to avoid cardiac arrest.
