According to the American Veterinary Dental Society more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have dental disease by the age of 3. Dental disease can be very uncomfortable for pets and the longer it is left untreated, the more complicated and costly it becomes to treat. If left untreated, periodontal disease will not only lead to tooth loss, oral pain and bad breath, but is directly linked to liver, heart, and kidney disease. Pets with good dental health live much longer, healthier lives.

Infrared Thermography is used for detecting discomfort throughout the body of an animal. We use thermal imaging to measure the radiant energy from the targeted tissue. This devise is completely safe with nothing being emitted. Hotter areas depict inflammation so that we know exactly what area of the body we should be treating.
Laser therapy is deep-penetrating light that allows relief of pain through the release of endorphins and stimulates the injured cells to heal at a faster rate. We often use laser therapy for ear infections, arthritis, gingivitis, skin conditions, orthopedic surgeries, and most commonly spays and neuters.
