Help your pet stay happy and healthy by ensuring their mouth stays clean! Know the early signs and symptoms of dental disease and how you can help prevent it in your pet. The more you know, the more proactive you can be!

While the outside of your pet's teeth and gums are important to keep clean, a bigger problem can lie beneath. When bacteria begins to form on the teeth, a substance called plaque forms. When the plaque calcifies (or hardens), a different substance called tartar develops. Eventually, tartar eats away at the gums and causes pockets to form in your pet's mouth which fill with bacteria. This can cause a slew of problems under the gum line and, if left untreated, can enter your pet's bloodstream and effect their heart, liver, and other organs. This is why routine cleanings and dental check-ups are so important! 

Our Community Clinic is offering a special dental care package to all families who have or call to set up dental appointments for their pet in the month of February (while supplies last.) ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—–๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ฎ๐˜ (๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿณ) ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿต๐Ÿฎ-๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ธ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐˜โ€™๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜.

Although they can be somewhat timid and cautious, when a rabbit is feeling confident they tend to go exploring! Rabbits love to look down tunnels, dig under blankets, pull up rugs, and fit into smaller spaces. All in the name of curiosity! Rabbits are also crepuscular, which means they're most active at dawn and dusk. So, if you have a sleepy rabbit during the day, that just means they'll need more time to explore their home during the early morning or evening! 

Cauliflower, one of our newest residents who is ready to find his happy home, is one curious guy! He loves to rearrange his living space and he never shies away from an adventure. He will fill your home with so much love and lughter!
