Last year, we took on some renovations that included adding an antimicrobial turf yard with a built-in irrigation system. The pups have definitely enjoyed the new turf, water, and baby pools we put out over the spring, summer and fall.

This means that as a result, we will be having limited Doggie Day Care and Hotel Reservations during this 3 week period. Our Doggie Day Care will be by reservatation only. *Please note that this is just for this time period.*

We are so excited that we are going to be able to triple the size of our hotel and will not need daily Doggie Day Care reservations going forward. Continued convenient drop offs without calling ahead is a major plus, right? More hotel suites also means help with accommodating our Hotel Reservations during the holiday seasons!

To sign your pup up for Doggie Day Care from January 22nd to February 9th, please call or visit the front desk and we are happy to help! Stay tuned to our Facebook Page and also follow our Instagram/Instastories to see the construction progression.

Pet Dental Health Month - What are the signs of dental disease in pets

With February right around the corner, we’re celebrating Pet Dental Health month early here at Trinity Animal Hospital. Did you know that your pet’s dental health is JUST as important as dental health is to a human? Yes, it’s true! This is why we recommend that your pet’s teeth should be checked at least once per year by a veterinarian. That check up allows us to detect early signs of a problem and by doing it once per year, we’re ensuring that your pet’s mouth is healthy.

There are a few different signs that a pet is experiencing periodontal disease. If gum disease is left untreated, it is painful to your pets mouth and can also lead to a chronic infection in the oral cavity. This infection can spread bacteria to the bloodstream and affect the heart, liver, and kidneys.

What Are Symptoms of Dental Disease in Pets

Ask yourself if you’ve seen any of the following with your pet?

  • Bad breath
  • Swelling in areas surrounding mouth
  • Teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
  • Broken or loose teeth
  • Bleeding from mouth
  • Reduced appetite
  • Irritability
  • Abnormal Chewing

If you think your pet is experiencing any of these signs, follow these simple steps to help get rid of dental disease and keep your pet smiling!

Dental disease in your pets

If it’s time for your pet’s yearly teeth cleaning or you have questions about your pet’s dental health, give us a call. We’d love to get that scheduled for you and get your pet feeling and looking better! 919-303-7880.

Several months ago, we donated to Urban Ministries’ annual Spring Fling event to benefit the local community in regards to Health, Homelessness and Hunger. We wanted to contribute with something more experiential to make our donation to the community more meaningful, so we decided on a kid-friendly event, “Spend A Day with a Veterinarian.”

Last month, the lucky winner and aspiring veterinarian, Lola came and spent the day at our hospital. Lola’s mom, Eliz, bid on the auction item as a present for Lola’s 10th birthday. Boy was she surprised!

The future Dr. Lola!

During her day with us, Lola got to shadow Dr. Richardson as well our team members here at Trinity Animal Hospital. She received a tour of our hospital, met our patients, followed along with Dr. Richardson to room appointments, observed a dental procedure and even got to help with a dog rehabilitation evaluation!

When we asked Lola why she wanted to be a veterinarian, she said:  Read More
