Wednesday, January 31 2018 Moorpark Veterinary Hospital is proud to offer full-mouth digital dental radiographs (X-rays) as a standard of care for all of our patients who receive dental procedures. Dental x-rays are performed by placing a small sensor in a pet's mouth in order to acquire images of the internal anatomy of teeth, their roots, and the bone surrounding the roots. Full mouth dental x-rays are essential to the overall evaluation of your pet's dental health. They can reveal otherwise unknown sources of disease or abnormality, they establish a baseline for future comparison and ensure that extractions, if needed, are carried out effectively. Taking dental radiographs, in addition to performing safe and effective dental cleanings, requires anesthesia. To learn more about dental cleanings and anesthesia click here.
Thursday, December 14 2017 Have you wondered what breeds are in your dog's mix? Gigi's DNA test results showed that she is a Chihuahua/Miniature Poodle mix with a portion of her ancestry mixed beyond three generations. Current veterinary DNA testing provides breed information but also reveals more than your dog's mix.

This program is designed to enhance the daily lives of dogs in our county's Simi Valley and Camarillo shelters by allowing them to enjoy Kong toys stuffed with treats. Our annual Kong drive lasts from now until early December. Click here for more information about Ventura county's no-kill animal shelters.
