Creature Comfort: In Praise Of Veterinarians And Their Work

Welcome, everybody! I'm Yvonne and I volunteer at the local animal shelter. It is amazing to see how a little interaction can perk animals up. Mostly, there are dogs and cats, but we've had illegal pets too such as goannas, kangaroos, hares and even a fox! Of course, they can't be released into the wild. I am in absolute awe of the veterinarians who attend our shelter. They can treat everything from the largest Great Dane down to tiny turtles. They tell me that the animals are often abandoned because they appear to be sick; however, in most cases, a simple vet treatment does the trick. In this blog, I plan to sing the praises of vets and explain the ways I've seen them prevent and cure animal ailments. I hope there's something for both pet lovers and future pet owners. Thank you for stopping in.

Does Your Dog Have a Fractured Tooth?

Chewing on sticks and bones can cause a tooth fracture, but a fracture can also be caused by trauma, such as a collision with another dog or being involved in an accident. In addition to damaging the protective enamel, when your dog sustains a tooth fracture, bacteria can enter the fracture line and cause a painful infection, which could lead to an abscess developing and damaging the root of the tooth.
