Patient of the Month – Charlie

This cutie pie, Charlie, came to us for repair of multiples fractures to her jaw that happened while she was playing with the family dog. Her lower jaw was fractured in 3 different places and her upper jaw also sustained a fracture.  Often these types of fractures are repaired with wiring and/or some type of bonding.  Typically, we reduce the fracture by re-aligning the jaw in its normal position and stabilize it with wire and/or [...]

Tennis balls seem soft and dogs love them, but they are very abrasive to their teeth.  Dogs that are good chewers often end up with flat crowns and can even have pulp exposure from chewing on these toys. It’s like chewing on sandpaper. It’s even worse at the beach where wet sand sticks to the ball!

Patient of the Month – O.J.

2020-04-26T17:03:47+00:00 January 31st, 2017|

Meet O.J., a sweet 11 year old kitty who came to us for evaluation of his Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis. His treatment consisted of extracting all of his premolar and molar teeth, which in most cases allows the mouth to heal. After his initial treatment, O.J. began laser therapy twice a week with a therapeutic Class 4 laser. This treatment decreases inflammation and increases blood supply to the damaged tissue thereby speeding up the healing [...]
