Stem Cell Q & A

Many dogs have tartar and gingivitis like this older dog. This dog has been a chewer also, note the worn teeth.

Pet Dental Health Month

February is National Pet Dental Health Month. We will be offering a 10% discount on all dental services and products this month.

Let's keep our pet's breath fresh and smile bright.

Schedule a Dental ATP (Assessment, Treatment, Prevention) today.

Wondering if your pet needs a Dental ATP? Call for a free oral exam for one of our veterinarians to take a look. (Oral exam only. This offer is not for a full physical examination.)

Do you PIN, +, Facebook or Tweet?

The social media options are becoming too numerous to count. I recently found an app that helps post to over 200 social media sites.

Here at Bobtown Pet Clinic we are working on a select few. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linked-In, Google + and Manta.

If you use any of these sites, please Like, Friend, Follow, Link or Connect us to your network. You can find us at the image links above or search for Bobtown Pet Clinic.

We promise not to overload your sites. We try to post information only if it is important, informative, educational and sometimes too funny/cute not to share.

Blogging with Bobtown

You may have noticed that we recently upgraded our website. One of the new features we have is the ability to create a blog. As such, we are working to post something on the blog every 1 to 2 weeks. Additionally, our monthly newsletter will also be posted on the blog.

Blogs could be expansions on a newsletter article, educational, timely topics, promotional, about pet care topic and possibly some professional opinions.

Where is the future of stem cell therapy going?

This is a great question that we may not even realize an answer at this time. Certainly the potential for many great medical benefits is present. Think about the regeneration of kidneys, treatment of Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, growing new hearts and other organs for patients in need of transplants. There are many possibilities for this therapy currently in its infancy.

This therapy is not available in humans at this time. Your pets are on the cutting edge of medical history. What is learned from our pets today will without a doubt impact humans tomorrow.

Would you be interested in a New Oral Flea and Tick Preventative Product?

We have recently learned about a new product for dogs to treat and prevent flea infestations and to kill ticks. The medication is given as a monthly chewable tablet. Therefore, there is no time of avoiding touching the dog in the area and concern about topical residues contacting people. It appears to have an excellent safety profile.

As part of our deliberations, we are asking clients if this type of product would be of interest.

Please call take our one question survey at this survey link. If this link does not work you can copy and paste the address into your browser: https://app.e2ma.net/app2/survey/36024/213036472/905990ec40/?v=a

The survey will be available until February 28, 2014.
