Topic Summary

Whenever we aren’t sure of the source of a dog’s malaise, we check the teeth! Time after time, pain or infection in the mouth has been found to be a drag on our dog’s energy and even the root cause of other organ malfunction. After a dog gets a dental cleaning or extraction, the owner usually remarks, “she is like a whole new dog!” Finally free from pain and bacteria showering their whole body from the mouth, a dog’s health and happiness can dramatically improve. So how do you know if your dog needs a dental? How to you keep your dog’s teeth clean and healthy day to day to avoid unnecessary dental extractions? Join us this month to get the facts!

Preview: What seems like a localized problem – enamel damage, recessed gums, exposed roots and dental infections – leads to serious health issues in your dog. Heart disease, digestive upset, inflammation in joints, and problems with major organ systems all can be caused by dental disease! Learn to prevent dental damage now, deal with teeth that are already in trouble, and keep your dog happy and energetic with sage advice from Dr. Adam Piaseczny.

Who is Dr Adam?

Dr. Adam, the owner and head clinician at Healthy Pets Veterinary Hospital, specializes in nutrition and diet, acupuncture, and herbal medicine. He is a ‘foodies’ vet’, keen on promoting awareness of the benefits of fresh food-based diets for pets. His style has been referred to as thorough, patient, and supportive. Dr. Adam lectures monthly at Muttville; some of his past lectures have covered clinical nutrition and medical management of geriatric pets. Dr. Adam always has animals in his family; his current main buddies are his hiking companion Ricky, a senior black Chihuahua mix, and J.J., a sweet but intense Border Collie newly adopted from Muttville.

These awesome learning experiences are sponsored by small club: big adventures for small dogs, Healthy Pets Veterinary Hospital, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue and Pawtrero Hill BathHouse & Feed Co.
