Dental issues cause pain, infection, disease, and sometimes death. Be sure your pet isn't suffering because of his teeth.

Is My Pet Too Old To Have Anesthesia?
Although certain medical conditions may cause concern for anesthesia this is true at any age but old age itself is not a disease. A puppy or kitten with a heart problem is an anesthetic concern just as a heart problem would be a concern in a 15 year old pet. With a physical exam, preoperative bloodwork, and a consultation with the doctor concerning expectations, anesthesia can be pursued at any age without undue risk. Read More
Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition of dogs, cats, and other species of mammals. The parasite that causes heartworm disease is Dirofilaria immitis. It is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito. The adult stage of the parasite is found in the heart and major blood vessels of infected animals.
Canine heartworm infection has been found by veterinarians in dogs in all 50 States. All dogs regardless of their age, sex, or habitat are susceptible to heartworm infection. However the highest infection rates (up to 45%) in dogs not maintained on heartworm preventive are found within 150 miles of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Coast from Texas to New Jersey and along the Mississippi River and its major tributaries. That means dogs in the St. Louis, MO area are highly at risk.

Not All Surgery Is The Same
Many pet parents don't understand that there are differences in the quality of care in surgery. Those differences are often reflected in prices. Some animal hospitals will take shortcuts that reduce price but also reduce the level of care and comfort for their patients. (After all, veterinary patients aren't really able to complain!)
That means that even routine spay and neuter surgeries -and their prices- can vary wildly from hospital to hospital. There are many substantive reasons to choose to have surgery at Hope Animal Hospital over a less expensive place. Click here to learn about the supplies, techniques, and procedures that the veterinarian and staff at Hope Animal Hospital utilize to provide safe and comfortable surgery for our patients.
"Your Pet Needs a Dental"
It has probably happened to you or someone you know. You take your pet to the veterinarian; they look at your pets teeth and tell you your pet needs a dental. A price is often quoted and either you make an appointment or because you are confused and worried about the risks you don’t make the appointment and go on your way. This guide will help you understand what is being recommended and why.
