Dental Month

By: Dr. Ben Davidson DSC_0963

February is National Pet Dental Health Month, and Baring Boulevard Veterinary Hospital is joining in.  You may ask “Are you serious?”.  Yes we are.  Pet dental health is very serious.  You take care of your own teeth multiple times every single day, but most of us can’t or don’t give the same kind of attention to our pets teeth.   Because of this, 85% of household pets suffer from dental disease.  Once pets have reached this point, a professional dental cleaning is necessary to address the disease.

CJSo what does a professional dental cleaning entail?  It is an anesthetized procedure in which a team of our doctors, veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants evaluate and treat whatever problems are present.  The evaluation includes a full dental charting and periodontal diagnostics including radiographs of any questionable or affected teeth.  The teeth are then cleaned using an ultrasonic device to clean the visible surface of the teeth, but most importantly below the gum line where the most serious disease occurs.  If any teeth need advanced procedures, such as periodontal antibiotic infusion, sealing and bonding, or extraction, those are performed at this time.  The teeth are then polished to complete the procedure and your pet is recovered in our post anesthesia ICU.

These procedure are performed at BBVH every weekday, year round, but if you schedule during February you will imagesreceive a $35 discount off the cost of the dental cleaning, dental health kit (valued at about $15). If you have any questions about these procedures or would like to schedule your pets dental evaluation, please call our office.  We also are happy to have you swing your dog or cat by for what we call a “flip of the lip” exam, where one of our doctors or technicians will do a free check on your pets teeth to better tell you if a dental procedure is necessary, and if so, what it will likely entail.

Our HomeAgain Chip-a-thon is back on!  During the summer months more dogs go missing than any other time of the year. We will be offering the HomeAgain microchip, life time registration, and 1st year of extra benefits for $28 (normally $47). No appointment is needed, and we are open 7 days a week. Check out Gabby’s story about how she went missing and found her family thanks to her HomeAgain microchip. This promo will go on until the end of July.

FoundPetImageWhile away on vacation, our German Shepherd, Gabby, decided to jump the electronic fence and the wooden fence that protected her in our backyard.

When our caretaker came to watch over Gabby (since we were away), she discovered that Gabby was missing. Two days later when the caretaker was finally able to contact us about our missing furbaby, we immediately reported it to HomeAgain and put out a HomeAgain poster.

Two weeks after Gabby went missing, a PetRescuer saw the HomeAgain poster and immediately recognized Gabby as a dog that was brought into the clinic. After scanning Gabby and seeing the HomeAgain poster, the kind PetRescuer was able to confirm that this was indeed the dog in the poster! HomeAgain got in touch with me as soon as a possible and I rushed to the clinic. Fifteen minutes after arriving at the clinic, a patron arrived with my Gabby!

After two whole weeks, my precious furbaby is home again! Thanks to the great people at HomeAgain. We could never repay you for reuniting us again with our precious pup. Thank You HomeAgain!

 

Hey guys, did you know that more pets get lost from their families during the summer months then any other time during the year? To help reunite pets with their families, Baring is doing it’s annual Microchip-a-thon. From now until July 4th the microchip is only $36 (which includes the registration, and a year of the extra benefits).  Below is the story of Buddy an indoor outdoor kitty that was missing for 3 months…..

FoundPetImage (1)In the spring of 2007, an under nourished 7-8 month old stray cat made his presence known from a distance with a meager series of cries. Over time we gained his confidence and provided a short period of petting and rubbing. Then off he went. The next morning we saw him still around the house. We fed the starving creature and he could not get enough food that day.

We discussed our next plan and vowed that if he remained at the house we would adopt. And here begins the 5 year saga of Buddy, our loved companion. He literally captured our hearts very shortly after ‘adopting us’! He was not a cat of great need for ‘cuddly’ compassion but more so just a tag along buddy (hence his name) who was curious of everything we did. He bonded with us from the start and us with him. He was small and our thought was that he may have been the ‘runt’ of the litter. We nursed him back to health and he became a very healthy and happy cat. Over the course of these years he provided us with much laughter and joy. That’s not to say there weren’t times of great distress and adjustments needed by all of us, but he also began to mellow slowly as time went on.

Through the bad times and good times, Buddy was always there waiting to be brushed, fed and loved. He truly was part of our family and gave us such pleasure. He became our 50-50 cat as we referred to him, half the time outside and always indoors every night.

Late in 2012 our son passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. With the turmoil that ensued, Buddy began to spend more and more time away from the house…..he knew something was not right. Plans were made to relocate soon after and when the day came we boarded Buddy while we completed our move, also understanding the task we faced with Buddy adapting to a new environment.

On January 2, 2013 we picked up Buddy from the vet after a week of boarding. Futile attempts were made to allow him to adjust. He was extremely unhappy and escaped that same afternoon. Our hearts were broken. In the ensuing days, weeks and months we searched all available resources for Buddy always looking everywhere we went. We were miserable with the loss of our son and our Buddy too. We resigned to the fact that he had joined our son and tried to make peace with that.

Then on a calm day, April 1, 2013, we received a call that will forever live in our minds. Nearly three months after he went missing, someone brought Buddy into the local animal services. He was healthy and was about to be put up for adoption when he was scanned for a microchip. During his last vet visit for a wellness check in 2012 we had the microchip installed and registered Buddy with HomeAgain. Our son had tried for years to get us to do that. Thank God we did; it was a gift from our son. It was what brought Buddy back to us. We call it a miracle!

Buddy was found 8 miles from our new home and less than 4 miles from his familiar territory of our last home. He was born and raised in that area and was heading back to his home!

It’s that time again, Santa Paws is coming to Baring Blvd Veterinary Hospital. Come down and join us for some laughs, refreshments, and have your pet’s picture taken with Santa. The event will start at 7:15pm. It is free, but during this time we will be accepting donations for the Nevada Humane Society. Make sure you stop on by we can’t wait to see you there!

Starting November 1st – December 31st for every Facebook Check-in Baring Blvd receives , we will donate $1 to the Nevada Humane Society. All you have to do is on your mobile device is check-in to BBVH and show a member of our staff and we will do the rest.  Last year we were able to raise $250. Hopefully this year we can do more. Thanks Again we have the best clients.
