Adobe Animal Hospital in Los Altos has expanded its services for ailing pets to include special dentistry and rehabilitation therapy. Adobe veterinarian Dr. Judy Force provides part-time consultation and treatment for orthodontic procedures such as crowns, root canals and braces.
Dogs and cats can suffer from tooth and gum infections after having a tooth extracted just like humans. Removing a tooth can affect the animal’s ability to eat or hold its tongue in its mouth. Root canal is a recommended alternative to tooth extraction.
Credentialed from the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry, Force also offers periodontal, endodontic, oral and periodontal surgeries, treatment for jaw fractures and oral-tumor surgery. Pet owners who train show dogs can now bring their pets to Adobe to save a fractured or diseased tooth.
“These new services are fulfilling a demand from our clients who prefer to come to one clinical setting for all their pet-care needs,” said Adobe practice manager Summer Holmstrand-Irmiter.
The animal hospital has partnered with Scout’s House in Menlo Park for rehabilitation therapy services for cats and dogs suffering from conditions such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, disk disease, degenerative myelopathy or injury recovery.
A therapist from Scout’s House will be onsite at Adobe twice a month to examine pets and recommend therapies.
Adobe Animal Hospital is located at 4470 El Camino Real, Los Altos. For more information, call 948-9661 or visit www.adobe-animal.com.
