Wellness Care

At Shelley Veterinary Hospital in Shelley, ID, we believe that regular checkups and wellness exams are critical to your pet’s well-being. These wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet while also giving us a baseline for their unique bodies and tendencies.

Not only do these exams keep us up-to-date with your pet’s health, but they also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious. This thorough checkup gives us vital information to help keep your pet healthy!

Regular wellness exams also make your pet more familiar with our veterinary hospital, which makes future visits easier on them and you.

Dentistry

Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.

In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are unaware of the importance of dental care to their pet’s health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pet’s dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspections.

Professional cleaning is the most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease. We perform thorough cleanings here at Shelley Veterinary Hospital, including the area beneath the gums you can’t see or access at home.

If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us at (208) 357-5100 today to learn more and schedule your pet’s dental cleaning.

Additionally, laser therapy does not cause any pain or discomfort to your pet, is very effective when used by a skilled professional, and may decrease the need for more invasive and expensive therapies and medications.
