Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a total physical exam,
with a thorough investigation of your pet's head, body and tail,
and all his assorted cavities. Because even the most cooperative
pet may not readily go along with a tooth and gum brushing, an
periodic cleaning by your veterinarian may be in order. Like you,
your pet can lose his teeth due to decay and neglect. It's a good
idea to keep an accurate medical diary, not only of the
procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but
also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any
physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small
shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and
mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this
notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated
occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests.
Also, if you need to change vets, it's good to have this journal to
provide a complete medical history.
Choose a veterinarian who is calm, compassionate and willing to
explain all the procedures your dog undergoes. Try to find a vet
with whom both you and your dog feel comfortable. Try to have it
convenient, choose a clinic with qualified staff and facilities to
undertake surgery and perform procedures requiring
anesthesia, such as teeth cleaning. Because of the general risks
inherent in anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or
very ill dogs, your veterinarian will likely suggest a few tests,
including blood work and an electrocardiogram, before your pet
is anesthetized. During the procedure he might need IV fluids;
antibiotics may be necessary before and/or after.
In some circumstances, Dr. K may
refer you to a specialist. These are veterinarians who have completed
studies in disciplines such as internal medicine, surgery, ophthalmology, oncology, and critical care. We have close
working relationships with numerous referral facilities, and can help to arrange care if your dog must undergo procedures
requiring especially sophisticated equipment, precise knowledge or experience.
