I love taking my dogs here. The only thing I can say is that I take my dog to get his nails cut quite often. I don’t know if his nails just grow that fast or if they aren’t being cut short enough. They are AMAZING with my animals though and I won’t take them anywhere else.

How Often Should My Cat / Dog Receive Teeth Cleaning?

Experts recommend getting your pet’s teeth cleaned professionally every 6 months – 1 year depending on your breed of dog. If you are taking great care of your cat’s or dog’s teeth already, you may only have to take your pet every other year. However, always discuss your options with a vet before taking any serious action.

If your pet is starting to have really bad breath, it’s probably time to bring them in for a dental exam. Other reasons to schedule dental cleaning include difficulty eating, seeing blood on chews or bleeding gums.

Cat & Dog Dental Exams

Most pets should receive a dental exam at least once a year. This dental exam includes, subgingival and supragingival cleaning, polishing, intraoral evaluation and further periodontal therapy. Pet dental cleanings at Augusta Animal Ranch Hospital involves removal of calculus and plaque, either with sonic/ultrasonic instruments listed above, hand instruments or gingival margin, intra-oral radio-graphs, periodontal probing, charting and more treatments such as extractions if needed or deep periodontal therapy.

Dental Treatment Options & Take Home Instructions

After the oral examination is complete, the initial treatment plan is set. The veterinarian will discuss a couple options and then the client will be able to decide of the treatment plan that best suits their pet. Next, the patient(pet) is anesthetized and the periodontal therapy begins. After the therapy is complete, you will be given take home instructions for caring for your pet from home.

5 Star Review: “This office is fantastic. Dr. Oilver has been my vet for years. His compassion and knowledge are off the charts. I seem to have dogs with complex medical problems and I couldn’t ask for better care than his. Jennifer’s customer service at the front desk is warm and knowledgable. She is always on top of everything and willing to help wherever needed. My dogs are my kids and important members of our family and I feel like Dr. Oliver treats them like part of his family too. I recommend this office hands down! You won’t be disappointed. ” Sharon N.

Coccidia Mesa | Treatment Of Coccidiosis

Coccidia Treatment Mesa Coccidiosis

Are you wondering why your cat or dog is experiencing diarrhea? It’s possible they may have Coccidiosis or Coccidia in their intestinal tracks. Coccidea are basically small one-celled organisms (protozoans) that hide out in intestinal tracks of cats or dogs.

*Important – If your dog or cat is experiencing any signs of diarrhea (not just Coccidiosis), you should get your pet examined right away to avoid more severe symptoms or even death. Call us right away at (480) 380 – 6710 to schedule an appointment with our expert veterinarians. Read more about Coccidiosis below..

Coccidiosis disease is most commonly found in kittens and puppies that are six months old or less. Also, in adult cats or dogs whose immune systems are suppressed, or are stressed in different ways (for example; other disease present, change of ownership).

Symptoms of Coccidiosis?

As mentioned above, the most common sign of Coccidiosis is diarrhea. Depending on how severe the infection is, the diarrhea can be mild to severe (Mucous & Blood Present) in advanced cases. Animals with a severe case of Coccidiosis may even lose their appetite, vomit, dehydrate, or in few cases, die from cocccidiosis.

Risks Involved?

Most cases are mild but it’s not uncommon to see severe cases. The severe cases mostly come about in animals who are infected with bacteria, parasites, or other viruses at the same time. Also, Coccidiosis is contagious among young puppies.

What is the treatment of coccidiosis?

There are treatments available for Coccidiosis. The best way to treat and prevent Coccidia is by prescription drugs. However, drugs don’t kill the protozoans, rather they stop them from reproduction. This allow the puppy’s own immune system to fully develop  to kill off the organisms naturally.

Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital will recommend treatments based on your pets condition and overall health.

How Can I Prevent Coccidiosis From Spreading?

Coccidia can be spread by carrier animals, which makes it extremely important to have a strict sanitation plan. Fecal matter should all be removed from the home. Food and water should be clean at all times and should never be contaminated with feces. The best methods is disinfection include; steam cleaning, boiling water immersion, or cleaning with ammonia solution 10%. Also, making sure your home is free of pests and rodents is important as well. Insects and rodents can both carry coccidia. Humans on the other hand cannot be affected by this organism.

If your animal is experiencing diarrhea and you think it might be Coccidiosis, get in touch with Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital asap for diagnosis, and treatment options. Give us a call today at (480) 380 – 6710.
