DUE TO THE SPIKE IN COVID-19 CASES IN SEVIER COUNTY, WE ARE OFFERING CURBSIDE SERVICE ONLY FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.  PLEASE CALL THE CLINIC 865-577-2738 WHEN YOU ARRIVE AND A TECH WILL BRING YOUR PET INSIDE.  PLEASE REMAIN IN YOUR VEHICLE.  WHEN THE APPOINTMENT IS OVER, AND IF NECESSARY DURING THE APPOINTMENT A DR.

We understand during these uncertain times surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak that you have questions about your pet.  Please know we are here to help you in any way we can.  Together we will get through this.  Here is information that you may find helpful.

CAN I GET COVID-19 FROM MY PET?

At this time, there is NO EVIDENCE that companion animals, livestock or wildlife can spread COVID-19 or that they might be a source of infection in the United States.  However, since all animals can carry germs that can make people sick, it's always a good idea to practice healthy habits around pets and other animals.

  • Wash your hands after handling animals, their food, waste or supplies.
  • Practice good pet hygiene and clean up after pets properly.

Take pets to the veterinarian regularly and talk to your veterinarian if you have questions about your pet's health.

IS THERE A RISK TO MY PETS AND HOW CAN I PROTECT THEM IF I AM SICK?

The CDC has NOT received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19.  If you are sick with COVID-19 (either suspected or confirmed), you should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just like you would with other people.  This can ensure both you and your animals stay safe.

Remember, the only silly question is the one not asked.  Please reach out to us with any concerns or questions you may have at this trying time.

FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL PET DENTAL HEALTH  MONTH

During the month of February we are offering a 10% discount on our dental cleanings.  This discount applies to pre-anesthetic blood work, IV with fluids, dental cleaning, flouride treatment, post-procedure antibiotics, and a two week supply of Ora-Vet Dental Hygiene Chews.  A complimentary nail trim will also be included upon request.  **Discount does NOT apply to any necessary extractions and your pet must be up to date on all vaccines.

Dental disease affects nearly 85% of all cats and dogs over the age of three years.  In addition to association with liver, kidney and heart disorders, dental disease is a frequent source of pain and often leads to poor general health.  Dental disease is as common in dogs and cats as it is in humans.  Cavities make up the majority of dental problems in humans, but pets most commonly suffer from plaque buildup.  This buildup often causes inflammation of the gums around the base of the teeth (gingivitis), which is a continuous source of discomfort and pain.  If untreated, this will ultimately lead to periodontal disease with infection, bone loss and tooth loss.  Dental disease in pets may lead to an internal disease if left untreated.

Signs of dental disease include: 

Bad Breath is the primary sign of dental disease.  Dogs and cats breath should not have a disagreeable odor.

Red, swollen gums                               Abnormal chewing, drooling or dropping food from the mouth                Reduced appetite or refusal to eat

Teeth that are broken, loose, discolored or covered in plaque (tarter)                               Bleeding from the mouth               Frequent pawing or rubbing at the face/mouth area             Weight loss

So, what is involved in cleaning your pets teeth?

Proper cleaning of the teeth requires complete cooperation of the patient so plaque and calculus can be removed.  Therefore, anesthesia is required to thoroughly clean the teeth.  Although anesthesia always carries a degree of risk, the modern anesthetics and advanced monitoring equipment greatly minimize this risk, even for older animals.  Usually, the risks associated with the dental disease far outweigh any risk from anesthesia.  In addition, medications may be dispensed for use after the cleaning to treat and help prevent dental disease progression.
