Trimming your dog's nails can be a bit scary but this video shows that with some training, and a lot of rewards, it can a fun experience. Regular trimming will keep the nails shortened by keeping the quicks shorter.

How to ... Clean Your Dog's Ears

Brix Having His Ears Cleaned

Once again Brix is a good sport and demonstrates another procedure you may do at home - having his ears cleaned. Sometimes we are cleaning our pet's ears as part of the treatment for an ear infection and sometimes it is for maintenance purposes. Make sure you are using an ear flush that is made for your pet's ears. Many homemade cleaners are harmful to your pet's ear canals and eardrums.

Having you pet's teeth professionally cleaned may cause some concern for many petparents and although we know it is in our pet's best health we may find ourselves procrastinating scheduling a cleaning. This video follows Brix throughout the entire procedure.

Canine Neuter

Bromley Being Neutered

Bromley came to the hospital to be neutered. We made of video of his process so you can see what is involved with a canine neuter at River Road Veterinary Hospital. The video starts with his pre anesthetic blood work appointment and follows his journey until he is discharged from the hospital. The video of the actual neuter surgery is not shown but Bromley being anesthetized and prepped is. We feel that the more people are educated the better decisions can be made regarding our pet's health. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Trimming your cat's nails can be done at home (although the nurses are happy to do them here). Cradling your cat on your lap is a nice way to hold them and helps keep them calm.
