May is Equine Dental Month. **For the month of May get a routine float for $95 (plus $62 sedation)**

Your horses teeth never stop erupting and need assistance from your Vet or Dental Tech to file off any sharp edges, hooks, points, and maintain occlusal balance. Maintaining your horses teeth may prevent them from loosing weight, having difficulty with the bit, and pain in their mouth.

The image below is a very large hook that our Tech Joanna found in a senior horse. This horse had never been floated and was not showing any signs of having a problem. The tooth was so long that it was actually stabbing into the lower jaw every time the horse tried to chew. Maintaining your horses teeth is one of the best ways to keep them happy and healthy

Review for Christine MurdochDVM

Christine was very calm, and talked me down from a very excitable situation. We came home with Milo and a treatment for his illness instead of coming home with an empty cat crate and a face covered in tears. I am pleased to say that since we have started the antibiotics Milo has improved dramatically and is once again a happy cat that is a part of our family. He actually wants to hug us (he doesn't really like anyone but me ) The change in his diet as well as the antibiotics have shown in his litter box too, he seems to be urinating more than before, so this shows me that they are working !! YAY !!! This is the reason why we love and trust the team at Murdoch Vet and will always bring our fur kids there for treatment. Thank you again for making what could have been a horrible afternoon a wonderful afternoon.
Prince George, BC
