Dentistry

Did you know that dental disease is one of the most commonly diagnosed medical conditions in adult dogs and cats? In fact, it’s something that affects the vast majority of four-legged family members. Yet as common as this condition is, it’s also quite serious. If left untreated, dental disease can spread beyond your pet’s mouth and cause serious problems throughout the entire body, including disease of the heart, liver and lungs. It can even shorten your companion’s life. That’s why pet dentistry is so important – both professionally and at home. By staying on top of your companion’s oral health, you can effectively reduce or even eliminate the risk of your pet developing dental disease, ultimately extending and improving their quality of life.

Vineyard Veterinary Hospital offers complete dental care services to both prevent oral health problems, as well as treat and manage those that are already present. Our staff is skilled and experienced in all aspects of professional pet dentistry, from dental exams to cleanings and polishing of the teeth. We are also prepared to treat whatever dental problem your pet may already be suffering from. Dental disease and other oral health problems can be treated a variety of ways, from antibiotics to the extraction of diseased teeth and more. We’ll work with you to determine the best course of action to address and manage your pet’s dental care in the most effective way possible.

Lastly, we’ll focus on including you as an active participant in your pet’s dental health care. Annual visits aren’t always enough to keep dangerous plaque, tartar and bacteria at bay. It’s up to you to step in and pick up where our professional dental care leaves off by brushing your pet’s teeth daily and using treats and chews that are designed to support healthy teeth and gums. We’ll be happy to provide you with advice, guidance and demonstrations to make sure you have everything you need to help your pet achieve a clean, fresh smile for life!

      In the last 10 years Dr. Totman has cared for all of my fur babies with expertise and compassion that is unparalleled in Temecula. The happiest day is when you get your pet, the saddest day is when you say goodbye to your pet. And with all the things that happen to your pet then and in between, you want expert care in a family-owned environment vs. a corporate sales-oriented one. No one wants to think of that worst day. When that day comes though, as it did for me this week, you want a vet and staff who is sensitive to your pet's needs, comfort, and your grief. You want a vet who loves his patient, and you get that with Dr. Totman and his staff.

      We lost our Koufax today, after losing Sandi in March. They both lived 16 wonderful years and were a part of our family almost from the time Ellen and I got married.
      The house seems empty and it will be a long while before the sadness wanes, but their memories will always bring smiles to us.

      Sandi and Koufax were both taken care of until their last day by the amazingly compassionate staff at Vineyard Veterinary Hospital. Even at their passing, Ellen and I and our dogs felt that we could not have been in better hands.
      If in need of someone to care for your dog or cat, I highly recommend Dr. Totman, Joan, Verenice, Ashley and the rest of the staff at Vineyard.
