Newsflash

The Sheffield Staff want you to know about the up coming possible threats to pets with winter here.

Antifreeze: when you change your own radiator fluid and either leave the new can open or the old fluid in a pan, that becomes very enticing to pets.  Like sweet syrup they drink it fast, which leads to kidney failure and death.  Dispose of all antifeeze promptly and in safe containers.  Remember also, if you have a slow leak from a car/truck over heating, the drips on the floor can be enough for a small pet to cause problems.

 



Cold weather below zero degress: even when the temperature is 14 degrees, the wind chill can take the temp below zero degrees.  Have good shelter for outside pets, out of direct wind and water bowls that do not freeze.  Sometimes even the outside pets have to come into the garage area or even the house.  Make good choices.



Turkey bones: chicken or turkey bones as always are not a good choice for pets to eat as treats.  These bones can splinter and cause G.I. trauma or lacerations.   Some dogs digestive systems can digest these bones while others have diffiiculty, because of that risk group we recommend no dogs have these types of bones.


Chocolate:  chocolate anytime of year is not good for pets, if you bake with chocolate be extra careful.  Bakers chocolate is 10x more toxic then say a hershey kiss.

 
Dental Awareness Month

Why Dentals are important: Starting January 1st though March 31st

Plaque build-up, or gum disease/gingivitis. Plaque is composed of bacteria, saliva proteins, and food debris; as it accumulates on the teeth, and in between the gums and the teeth – it will cause

 the irritation, swelling, and redness that makes up the periodontal disease. If left unchecked, the grooves deepen, forming “pockets” (much as your own dental care provider gauges during each visit), which allow the bacteria to cause more damage to the gums, ligaments and bone tissues that hold the teeth in place. One especially scary consideration is that the bacteria from the periodontal infection has a clear shot to other vital organs.

Sheffield Veterinary Hospital will honor a 15% discount on dentals Jan. 1, 2014 - March 31, 2014!

Heal your pet with Laser Therapy:
What is Laser Therapy?  A surgery free, drug free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and increase speed of healing. Class IV deep tissue Laser Therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it.  Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation", which leads to reduced pain and inflammation.

How Laser Therapy at Sheffield Works: 
The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive hand piece to treat the affected area. 
Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Most treatments take a matter of minutes.  Feel free to ask us about the many treatments we are capable of... it may surprise you.  Your family pet will always remain our main concern.   Now, with Therapy Laser we have taken one more step to
