October is Dental Month! Save 15%
October 2, 2013
Does your pet have bad breath? Unfortunately, most pets do and this is not normal. The foul odor you smell is caused by an infection in their mouth. The most common cause of infection in your pet’s mouth is periodontal disease, which affects over 75% of pets over 2 years of age. Periodontal disease is a progressive and irreversible loss of the structures surrounding the teeth caused by chronic infection and inflammation in the mouth. When your pet eats, residual food particles in the mouth promote growth of bacteria. The bacteria form a slime layer, known as plaque, which attaches to the teeth and hardens to form tartar and calculus. Early treatment is best to prevent pain, tooth loss and expensive treatments. Call today and schedule your pet’s dental cleaning.

NEW IMPLANT FOR FERRET ADRENAL DISEASE
March 14, 2012
Springhurst Animal Hospital now has Suprelorin, a new implant for Ferret Adrenal Disease. Adrenal Disease affects 50% of ferrets. Adrenal Disease causes ferrets to become intensely itchy. The prostate gland in male ferrets enlarges and can cause a blockage of urine. The vulva in females swells just like she is in heat. About a third of the time, the adrenal glands become so abnormal that true cancers develop. A few years ago, treatment required major surgery to remove one or both of the adrenal glands. Now, many veterinarians use an implant with a slow releasing drug. Suprelorin is a new implant that last from 8 to 12 months, much longer than melatonin implants. With Suprelorin, sexual behaviors, aggression, vulva swelling, and itching decreased or disappeared by 14 days. Hair growth was evident by 4 to 6 weeks. This approach may even prevent Adrenal Disease completely. Please call Springhurst Animal Hospital for further information.
