Stinky dog breath and yucky cat breath are actually not normal. “Dog breath” is actually a sign of disease and infection, and it’s what your mouth would smell like if you never brushed your teeth. Learn more here: http://ow.ly/YffO30nCpG9

Even the little guys need dental care! Dr. Corcoran recently did a dental on a Guinea Pig: you have to look really close because Guinea Pig mouths are so tiny, and so is the dental equipment! Our Exotics technician Karen held a mask on the piggy's nose to administer Isoflurane to keep it asleep while Dr. Corcoran had its mouth held open and Dremeled the teeth that were too long or had sharp points. It's very important to shave these overgrown teeth down because if they become too long or pointed, they can keep the Guinea Pig from eating or even cause tongue lacerations. Constantly munching on hay can help prevent the growth of teeth at home though! Dentals on all animals big and small are important! #PetDentalHealthMonth #DentalMonth

Did you know dental disease is the most common chronic disease in our dog and cat patients? It is a silent condition and pets often don't complain, but it can go from bad breath to much worse if not addressed. Read more: http://ow.ly/DROS30nxVxT #petdentalhealthmonth #dentalmonth

#FunFactFriday from our own Dr. Corcoran:
I see far more intelligence in exotic pets than they are given credit for (yes, even fish, reptiles and other so-called "primitive" animals). They can all be trained and they all show really complex lives in the wild. This means they all also respond to good enrichment programs at home!

Exotics case spotlight: Dr. Corcoran recently saw a 45-year old African Grey! Our Exotics technician, Karen, drew blood and took x-rays after giving the parrot a small amount of sedation and using painter's tape to keep the wings flat (as it does not stick to feathers). At the end of her appointment, we gave this pretty bird Dr. Corcoran's business card but she just wanted to chew on it! 🐦 http://ow.ly/i/KSGHA http://ow.ly/i/KSGGK

Exotics case spotlight: Dr. Corcoran just loves his ferrets! This dapper young fellow is Professor Lupin, a 3-month old ferret who came in for a wellness visit. For ferrets, this means vaccines too. He received a distemper vaccine which is given annually because distemper can be fatal in ferrets and his rabies vaccine, which is also given annually. Like cats and dogs, ferrets are required by law in MA and NH to be vaccinated against rabies. Prof. Lupin was such a sweet little guy and we all absolutely loved his bowtie, but unlike his namesake, he does not carry nor eat chocolate! 😉
