Walk up times for vaccinations, heartworm testing, exams- basically everything except surgery-is from 10am to 2pm at all locations.  If you show up earlier than 10am, there is a good chance you will have an extended wait.  If you show up after 2pm, there is a good chance you will not be seen at all.  We have very tight schedules at most of our locations--some have gates that close at certain times.  Since the owners of the businesses where we park are generous enough to allow us to come there, we always defer to them as far as times we can be there.
                     So, just to review, all walk up services are betweeen 10am and 2pm at all locations.

 Importance of Dental care:
  Regular dental care is important because bacteria in a pet's mouth can cause    
  serious damage to internal organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys,         gastrointestinal tract, etc.  The way these bacteria make it to the organs is by       entering the bloodstream through diseased gums.  The gums become 
  diseased secondary to tartar buildup that irritates the gums.  As tartar               accumulates and irritation continues, inflammation sets in and the gum tissue
  begins to recede away from the teeth and then the teeth begin to loosen.  The    
  end result can be loss of the teeth.  In severe circumstances, there can also be  
  pus accumulation around the teeth.


  Gum disease and periodontal disease also causes bad breath, difficulty eating,
   finicky eaters, excessive drooling and pain. The only way to address these
   problems is to clean the tarter from the teeth.  This is accomplished by              
   chipping off the tartar by hand, then using an ultrasonic scaler to remove the
   remainder of the tartar.  The process is not done at that point.  After the scaling,
   the teeth are polished to smooth out defects in the surface caused by the
   scaling process.  This is a very important step that, if not done, will result in
   rapid reaccumulation of the tartar.  Finally, we apply a fluoride treatment to
   further harden the enamel.


   Dentals are frequently required for older pets.  These pets are also the ones
   most likely to have conditions that could make anesthesia more dangerous. 
   For any pet over 5 years of age, we strongly recommend preanesthetic labwork.
   For any pet over 7 years of age, we recommend full diagnostic screening.  This
   cannot be done the same day of surgery.  It should be done no more than 2  
   weeks prior to surgery.  We can perform this testing at any of our clinics.  We
   usually get results within 3 days.  You may also bring labwork done at other
  clinics, provided it was done within 2 weeks of the day of the procedure.
