Most pet owners know that True Care Veterinary Hospital recommends spaying or neutering your pet. Do you, though, as your pet’s advocate, understand why? The practice is not a new one, and there are actually quite a few benefits for both you and your four-legged friend in doing so. Read on to understand all the reasons that our veterinarians recommend spaying or neutering your pet. 


Why is Keeping Up With My Pet’s Dental Care Important?

Keeping your pet healthy and happy throughout her life means ensuring that she gets plenty of exercise and enrichment, proper nutrition, and quality pet wellness and pet dental care

By the time your cat or dog is 3 years old, she will most likely show some signs of dental disease, which will only worsen without professional pet dental care. Periodontal (gum) disease impacts much more than your pet’s breath or smile: the condition can become extremely painful, and as the bacteria builds up in your pet’s gums, it can eventually travel to her organs and cause kidney, liver, or heart damage.
