Regular professional teeth and gum cleaning is important to maintain your pet's health. An infection in your pet's mouth is just like one in his or her kidney, heart, liver or lung. The infection can easily spread from the gums throughout the entire body via the bloodstream.
We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup while fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel.

"LONG LIFE" CARE FOR PETS IN THEIR GOLDEN YEARS
Unfortunately, pets age much faster than humans but serious health problems can often be prevented or delayed with regular exams and early geriatric testing. Our staff has extensive experience with extending and enriching the lives of senior cats with kidney disease and senior dogs with arthritis.
We know that your pets are beloved members of your family. Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. At Abraham Veterinary Clinic, we provide the most up to date medications to relieve your pet's acute pain from trauma or post-surgery. We also strive to relieve chronic pain from arthritis with modern anti-inflammatories, pain killers, and acupuncture.
Why should you get your pet microchipped? All pets should wear collar tags with their owner's phone number. However, these tags often come off, and the pet cannot be identified. Microchips provide a permanent means of identification that cannot be lost. Each microchip has a unique number. This number, along with information about the owner and pet, are added to a national pet registry. All animal shelters and most veterinarians have electronic scanners that can detect and ready these implanted microchips. This has helped to reunite over 178,000 lost pets with their owners.
A microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath a pet's skin between the shoulder blades, and stays there for the pet's entire life. This procedure is simple and painless, similar to gettting a vaccine.
All of our patients are carefully screened for safety, and the anesthetics that we use are specifically tailored to your pet. We take pride in our anesthetic equipment and our attentive staff's patient care. Surgical services and facilities include the following:
- Fully trained veterinary and technical staff to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet
- Oxygen saturation and blood pressure monitors
- Intensive after-surgery care
- Full blood testing.
We also offer discounted spay and neuter surgery on Tuesdays.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, disease is the result of an imbalance of energy in the body. Acupuncture is believed to balance this energy and help the body heal. In Western terms, acupuncture can assist the body to heal itself by stimulating nerves, increase blood circulation, relieve muscle spasm, and cause the release of hormones.
At Abraham Veterinary Clinic, we commonly use acupuncture to relieve pain and inflammation associated with back and neck pain as well as arthritis pain. Acupuncture can be help improve appetite and well-being in older pets.For most pets, the insertion of acupuncture needles is virtually painless. Many animals become very relaxed and may even become sleepy.
Pets are like our children and we feed, nurture and lavish attention on them. Our highly qualified kennel attendants do the same when you can't be there. Ask about our cat boarding discount offer.
