Laser therapy: A promising trend in veterinary medicine

Jen Reeder

Denver resident, Sue Kohut, was alarmed when her Great Dane puppy, Beauxmont, became lethargic and developed swollen legs that were hot to the touch. At just five months old, the pup was diagnosed with hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD), a painful bone disease that can occur in fast-growing large and giant breeds. Read more

Kindness Animal Clinic Coronavirus Plan

We continue to be open our revised hours and  to follow social distancing protocol by utilizing Pet Only Appointments. We are having clients pulling up curbside and letting us know when you arrive.(360-794-8813). 

 

In the midst of recent developments with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are implementing a plan to help protect our clients and our team. So far, there has been no evidence pets are able to transmit the virus back and forth with humans. Our concern is human to human transmission. The greatest risk for transmission is through airborne particles and surface contamination. Our hospital policy already dictates we routinely disinfect surfaces with a medical grade disinfectant, and wash our hands frequently. We are adjusting our practice to focus on limiting our exposure between humans.

 

 

We will happily shake paws...but NOT hands!

 

 

 

 Our plan:

 

Internal Cleaning

  • In addition to our regular exam room cleaning, we will be cleaning all door handles between appointments.
  • We will be disinfecting our phones, desks, keyboards and mouse surfaces frequently.
  • Our credit card machine is on the front desk for you to operate yourself and we will be disinfecting it after each use.

Appointments

  • We don’t want our pet patients to go without veterinary care. We have set up a Pet Only Appointment:
    We will meet you in your car (call us when you arrive 360- 794-8813) or just outside our front door, and take your pet inside for an exam. You can remain in your car during the appointment and Dr. Garver will speak with you on the phone about your pet. We will check you out over the phone, and meet you at the front door or car with your pet and any needed medications.
  • For surgical drop offs, we can email you the estimate to complete prior to your arrival. You can either scan it and email it back, or hand it to us when you arrive with your pet. Post surgical pet pick up will be the same as for a pet only appointment. We continue to follow American Veterinary Medical Association’s  guidelines and will be restricting elective surgeries and dentistries in order to conserve medical resources for our human medical care workers and patients.
  • We will also happily do car side delivery for prescriptions and pet diets...just let us know when you call to request them.

Hours

In addition, we will be revising our hours.  Starting immediately...and for as long as needed...we will now be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00PM with our usual closure 12:30-1:30 for lunch. We will be closed on Wednesday and the weekend. These new hours are to allow us to deep clean our hospital and to minimize our staff exposure. We will keep you updated through our Facebook page, website, and email. Our goal is for Kindness Animal Clinic to remain a safe place for you, your pets, and our staff.

If you have any questions about our Covid 19 policies, please give us a call at 360-794-8813.

February is National Pet Dental Month!

 

 

 

 

Dental disease is the most common disease of dogs and cats and it causes:
Bad Breath
Painful infections of the mouth that can lead to a loss of teeth
Kidney and heart disease that can decrease the lifespan of your pet

Dental disease is preventable!!

Schedule your pet for a professional dental cleaning!  At Kindness Animal Clinic your dog or cat will receive:
1.  A thorough physical exam including blood tests to evaluate the health of your pet before the dentistry.
2. Your pet will have general anesthesia, pain medication, intravenous fluids to maintain hydration, and surgical heating pads to get them warm.  He/she will have constant monitoring using our state of the art equipment by our doctors and staff to keep your pet safe and comfortable during the dentistry.
3.  A thorough oral exam complete with full mouth dental x rays to assess all of your pet's teeth.
4.  Ultrasonic scaling and polishing of his/her teeth.
5.  Treatment of any diseased teeth or gums as well as fluoride and anti-plaque care to help prevent reoccurrence of dental disease.
Your pet may usually go home within a few hours of his/her dentistry - with a clean, healthy mouth and feeling much better!

Dental Care For Your Pet

Three Steps to Success
Your pet needs dental care - regular, professional care from your veterinarian, as well as care at home from you. The American Veterinary Dental Society recommends that pet owners follow three basic steps:

STEP 1: Take your pet to the veterinarian for a dental exam. Don’t wait for his annual checkup if you suspect a problem.

STEP 2: Begin a dental care regimen at home. Your veterinarian can suggest steps that may include brushing your pet's teeth. One of the most convenient and effective ways to combat oral disease is feeding specially formulated foods proven effective in combating plaque and tartar buildup. The Seal of Acceptance from the Veterinary Oral Health Council, an organization initiated by the American Veterinary Dental Society to guide consumers, appears on products that meet defined standards for plaque and tartar control in dogs and cats. For further information on the VOHC or their product standards, visit www.vohc.org.

STEP 3: Schedule regular veterinary checkups. These are essential in helping your veterinarian monitor the progress of your pet's dental health routine. Your veterinary health care team can help you schedule the appropriate visits.

Remember:

              While February is National Pet Dental Health Month, dental health should be a daily ritual for pet owners all year long.
