Dental Disease and Your Pet

Dental disease is the most common illness encountered today in veterinary medicine today, affecting 8 out of 10 pets.

Unfortunately, it is also the most untreated disease.

Dental disease puts tremendous demands on your pet's organs, spreading infection and weakening the liver, kidneys and heart.

This additional stress can lessen your pet's quality of life and shorten life expectancy. Pets often go for years with painful gingivitis, fractured teeth or severe tooth root abscesses, without noticeable clinical signs to the owner.

Single No More!






Hi, I'm Sebastian. As you know, I was a semi-feral kitty who got very sick and was lucky enough to be placed in the care of AMCWP. I stayed at the animal hospital for months, recuperating and waiting for someone to fall in love with me and give me a good home. Little did I know that my true love was right under my nose the whole time. Technician Dee could not resist my lopsided ears, fluffy orange fur, and grumpy/lovey personality. I am so happy to say that I am comfortably ensconced in kitty kingdom, sharing my digs with Dee's other kitties. But I won't share the bed.
