Frequently Asked Questions
What’s getting under your dog’s skin? More than you think! See how you can help your pet with environmental allergies and skin problems. #HillsDermDefense #ItchyScratchyDog.
Bad breath, inflamed gums, plaque and tartar buildup, and loose teeth are all of the great concern when it comes to the health of your animal’s mouth. If you notice any of these signs, please bring your pet in for a dental checkup or schedule a dental cleaning. If your pet’s teeth are not in need of a cleaning at the time of the checkup, we can give you recommendations to help maintain your pet’s overall mouth health such as helpful treats/toys, teeth brushing, and other pet safe dental products. If your animal is at greater risk of complications during anesthesia, we have products that can help improve mouth health and remove plaque and tartar buildup without performing a dental cleaning.
Historically, annual vaccination had been recommended. There were two reasons. The most important was that vaccine manufacturers had proof that the core vaccines provided immunity for at least a year. The second reason used to justify annual vaccination was that pets benefit from an annual health check – usually given at the time of vaccination. This check facilitates the early detection of heart disease, renal disease, and tumors and is an ideal opportunity to remind owners of parasite control, discuss management of skin disease, neutering and the like.
Spaying or neutering your pets can greatly reduce their risk of developing many types of cancer later in life. Spaying your animals will also reduce/eliminate the chances of your pets developing a uterine infection called a pyometra which can be a life-threatening condition. It may also decrease or even eliminate unwanted behaviors such as aggression or running off. Spaying or neutering your pets is also the only way to do away with unwanted litters of puppies or kittens without placing an extra burden on animal shelters.
The “warm nose myth” has many pet owners feeling that their pet has a fever (or otherwise sick) if the nose is warm and dry.
A dog’s (or cat’s) nose may be very wet and cool one moment then be warmer and not-so-moist the next. All over the course of a day. All perfectly normal. Changes in texture (crusty, flaky) and color (loss of pigmentation) of a pet’s nose should be looked at by your veterinarian. A prolonged dry, cracked nose, particularly with the loss of pigmentation, scabs or open sores should be examined by your veterinarian sooner rather than later. An ill animal will often have a warm, dry nose in addition to other symptoms, such as lethargy, decreased or absent appetite, vomiting, diarrhea and so on. In the absence of other physical signs, there are a host of dermatological (skin) problems that can be seen in this area, such as Pemphigus Foliaceus.
