We offer routine bathing at Briargrove Animal Clinic, including medicated baths, nail trims, and summer clips or pets who need to be shaved for medical treatment.

Dental health is an important part of your pet’s overall health and dental disease can lead to other health problems. Your pet’s teeth and gums should be checked by your veterinarian to check for early signs of a problem. Some common signs of dental disease include bad breath, inflamed gums, pain, swelling, itching, chewing on one side of their mouth, dropping food or refusing to chew crunchy food or treats. Our professional dental cleanings include teeth scaling, polishing, full mouth dental radiographs and an oral exam performed by the doctor, all while your pet is closely monitored and supported under anesthesia. Occasionally the oral exam and dental radiographs reveal dental disease significant enough to warrant periodontal therapy, sealant application or tooth extraction. Your pet’s doctor will discuss their findings with you and help you decide the best treatment option for you and your pet.
We are prepared to triage and stabilize most medical emergencies and perform diagnostics during our regular business hours. If your pet’s emergency requires continued, around-the-clock intensive care, we will help you choose the most appropriate referral veterinary hospital to transfer your pet.
Combined with a collar and current name tag, a microchip increases the likelihood of a lost pet being safely reunited with its owner. Placing a microchip is a quick procedure that can be done at any time. Microchips are more effective than collars and tags, which may fall off. Microchips save lives! Need to look up a lost pet’s microchip number? The AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool checks the databases of participating pet recovery services to determine which has registration information available for a microchip.

A unique vaccination program tailored to your pet’s needs will be reviewed to ensure your pet stays up-to-date. All this is to provide optimum health and optimize quality of life.
