Here at Twin Valley Veterinary Health Services, we offer Dental Prophylaxis (Dental cleaning). Keeping up with your pet’s oral health is very important. Dental disease can affect dogs and cats as early as three years of age. That “brown stuff” that you may see on your pet’s teeth is actually an accumulation of bacteria that will eventually harden into tartar and calculus. Once that accumulation gets bad enough, it will cause gingivitis. Gingivitis means the inflammation of the gums. This inflammation leads to more blood flowing to the gums, and the blood “picks up” the bacteria growing and then circulates throughout your pet’s internal organs. If this is left long-term, your pet could have serious internal issues, including heart disease.
We offer dental consults with our Veterinary Technologists, so if you think your pet may be suffering from dental disease, bring them in!
Large Animal Surgery
Orchidectomy aka Neuter
This is a routine procedure we do on dogs and cats. This surgery involves the surgical removal of the testicles rendering your dog or cat sterile. Neutering usually (not always) reduces your pet’s tendency to roam and fight or mark its territory. Also helps with disease reduction, such as prostate cancer or testicular cancers.
Please call us today and get your pet booked! Surgery days are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. (306) 745-6642.
Ovariohysterectomy, Spays, are performed on dogs and cats that are a minimum of 6 months old. This is a routine procedure, but it is a major abdominal surgery that consists of the removal of the ovaries and uterus. The advantages of getting this procedure done at an early age are:
- No more heat cycles
- No unwanted litters and reduces overpopulation
- Reduces risk of mammary gland cancers
- Eliminates the risk of Pyometra (infection of the uterus), which could be deadly
Please call the clinic today to book your appointment or if you have any further questions! (306) 745-6642.
