Your pet’s oral health affects their everyday life and overall well-being. It is about so much more than just bad breath!
Actually, dental disease isn’t just something that affects your pet’s mouth, but can also have negative health effects on the rest of the body, including the heart, liver, and kidneys.
When your pet’s gums get inflamed and infected due to dental disease, bacteria can migrate into the bloodstream and spread to other parts of the body.
The biggest issues of dental disease are most often not visible on the surface of the white enamel of the teeth, but below the gingiva (or gums). We practice the gold standard of dental surgery with full radiographs (x-rays) of the mouth to get a full picture of your pet’s oral health.

If a mass is determined to require surgical removal, we can perform this procedure in our hospital with same day discharge.
During the procedure itself, the surgeon and technician will monitor oxygen saturation with pulse oximetry, blood pressure, respiratory rate, heart rate, and body temperature.
The excised tissue is routinely submitted to a reference diagnostic laboratory for evaluation by a board certified clinical pathologist. Further treatment recommendations are made based on the histopathologic evaluation.
Sterilizing your pet eliminates the chance of unexpected litters. This means that, under general anesthesia, the reproductive organs are removed from your cat or dog.
Common pet vaccines protect your pets from an array of dangerous and potentially deadly diseases:
While vaccination and staying protected is vital, over-vaccination is dangerous for your pet. At VetNaturally™, we recommend titer testing. Titer testing is when a sample of blood is taken and is checked for existing antibodies for certain diseases. Titer testing helps guide us in determining which vaccinations your pet does or doesn’t need.
Whether your pet needs dental care, mass removal, vaccinations or a general wellness exam, we welcome you to join the VetNaturally™ family! Call (985) 718-9991 to schedule your appointment today.
