Committed to long-term dental health for local pets, Larchmont Animal Clinic provides oral exams, X-rays, teeth cleaning and polishing, and fluoride treatments. Veterinarians at Larchmont Animal Clinic perform careful dental examinations, searching for early gum disease, tartar buildup, or decay. In addition to routine oral treatments, Larchmont Animal Clinic professionals repair fractures and extract unsalvageable teeth. Pet symptoms of poor dental health include loss of appetite, tartar accumulation, persistent bad breath, and bleeding or inflamed gums. Larchmont Animal Clinic provides microchipping to help protect lost or missing pets and reunite them with their owners. In the process, a Larchmont Animal Clinic veterinarian inserts a tiny microchip no larger than a grain of rice into the scruff of the neck, much like a vaccination.
Simple and harmless, the procedure allows easy identification of a pet for the remainder of its life; any lost pets taken to a vet or shelter will be scanned and identified. Understanding that most clients conduct Internet research on their pets’ conditions, Larchmont Animal Clinic has evaluated many websites and has identified the most reliable sources of information. On its own website, Larchmont Animal Clinic recommends a number of useful, accurate sources, including The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, Inc.; the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
