During examination, inserting a thermometer in the rectum is the preferred method of measuring a client’s temperature, as ear thermometers are often inaccurate and unreliable. Furthermore, if you notice that the thermometer is in the patient’s rectum for a prolonged amount of time, please don’t be alarmed; recording the correct temperature is an incredibly important aspect of the tentative diagnosis. Also, it detects some rectal abnormalities that could possibly go untreated with the use of an ear thermometer.
Why do we recommend Dentistry instead of Teeth Cleaning?
Teeth Cleaning: Removes only the visible tartar on the teeth but fails to address 60% of the dental problem which is hidden below the gum line.
Dentistry: Removes the visible tartar while also caring for the teeth above and below the gum line.
-We do not recommend routine teeth brushing at home. Whenever there is an occasion to give medication orally the pet will protest and refuse to open its mouth because it will remember the pain from the teeth brushing.
Preventive Teeth Care
-There is a special type of dry pet food that has proven to be effective in improving oral health which we can prescribe following the examination process.
