Doggie dentist in Central PA?

I have a Schipperke. She is a rescue. Her ex family just left her behind for months and now it seems her mouth is rotten. I first got her in Sept of 2007. It took a few months of bad breath, before we realized that she had some loose teeth. We brought her to the vet and they were to clean and check her teeth. Well, four teeth ended up coming out. Four teeth rotting in her mouth basically. Her teeth have seemed to be the only long term problem. We had thought the dental problems were behind us, until recently, we noticed she isn't eating much. Well, after close inspection, she has more loose teeth. Poor doggie, she is only 7 years old with a 13-17 year life expectancy, so this is not due to old age. We would love to take her to that old vet, but it is close to 2 hours away.......great wonderful people and low prices.........but so far. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced doggie dentist in Central PA?

  • When our vet moved his practice a few years ago, it didn't stop us - it was worth the drive to see him! If yours was that good, and everything else was worth it, isn't it worth your doggie's health to go see him, especially since he's seen her before? I would make the drive.

  • Well, we will make the drive IF we can't find anything closer. We would just rather find something within an hour since we have a 1 1/2year old daughter. We want the best for our doggie, but if we can find closer, we'll take it. Either way, she won't be denied the proper care.
