Thanks for reading our Article on National Pet Dental. I hope you enjoyed the Video on how to brush your dog's teeth. I hope all your pooches out there will sit that still!

To continue further into educating people in the importance of Dental Therapy Procedures for pets, I wanted to share with you a Video that was found on line.

This Video is for those of you who may wonder if it is safe to have your pet's teeth scaled without anesthesia?? We've all heard of the companies that are around town giving dogs a "dental" without anesthesia.

While you may form your own opinion of course, this is also simply my opinion.
I do not agree with, nor will I ever, having a dental procedure done on an animal who is not anesthetized.

I recently saw a client who had 4 dogs all over the age of 10 yrs. All four had severe periodontal disease. I looked at all the dogs and informed my client of the dental disease. Her reply to me was, "That can't be! I just had all their teeth cleaned 2 weeks ago by a company who came to my house and cleaned them while they were awake."

What they forgot to tell her was that her dogs were in need of much more care than what they could offer.
Her dogs needed a Veterinarian and a proper Periodontal Treatment while anesthetized.
Watch this video for more information on the dangers of dental scaling while awake.

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.

They were SCARED.
