                                  Happy Valentine’s Day!

                    February is “National Pet Dental Health Care Month”

                            Welcome Dr. Candie and Dr. Bridget!

We are happy to announce the addition of two new veterinarians to our staff!

Dr. Candie Corriher is a 1995 graduate of N.C. State University’s College of Veterinary
Medicine. She was an equine veterinarian for five years before making the switch to small animal
private practice. She has seven years of experience at various small animal veterinary clinics in
Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia. She has a special interest in internal medicine, ultrasound,
pediatric spay/neuter surgery, and pocket pets.

Dr. Bridget Duroche recently moved to the Portland area from the Midwest. She earned her DVM
at Auburn University in Alabama. Along with working as an associate at multi-doctor practices,
she has been very active in rescue and shelter medicine in the Midwest. Dr. Duroche plans to
continue her efforts to aid in caring for homeless pets in our area.

                            National Pet Dental Health Care Month

We believe preventative medicine can keep your pets healthy for as long as possible. Dental
disease is now recognized as the number one medical problem in dogs and cats. Knowing that,
preventive dental care is one of the best ways to keep your pet healthy. Best of all, it only takes
one minute or less of your time with your pet once a week to add two to five years to their life.
Those additional years of enjoyment for both you and your pet are because of what we have
learned about the bacteria in your pet’s mouth and how they can be harmful.
Please take a moment to do this one-minute evaluation of your pet’s mouth.
   Look at your pet’s teeth and smell their breath. If you see a brown or yellow build-up on the
  teeth, inflamed gums, broken teeth or smell a bad odor, it is time for your pet to have a dental
     evaluation and/or cleaning. Call 503-684-3132 to set up an appointment or just stop by.

 Advances in anesthesiology allow us to perform most dental procedures on an outpatient basis,
           and the time frame from arrival to departure can be as short as one hour.

                                      Things to Remember

    •   Vaccine clinic will be on held on February 16th, from 7:30 AM- 2 PM.
    •   Chocolate is very toxic to dogs and cats.
    •   Check your pet for lumps and bumps each week when you brush their teeth. Cancer
        grows very rapidly in pets.
