Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center Hosts Annual Dental Clinic for Horses

Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center Hosts Annual Dental Clinic for Horses

PENRYN, Calif.  – The premier equine medical center in Placer County and surrounding communities is preparing to host one of its largest medical events of the year as it expects to be the dentist for more than 1,500 horses this December. Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center is bringing back one of its most popular patient service deals by offering half price dental service to horses.

Last year Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center welcomed 1,488 horses in December, examining and balancing their mouths to increase their comfort level and ability to chew their food.. Just like humans have their teeth filed down, cleaned or get fillings, horses need help keeping their mouths healthy too. A horses teeth keep growing throughout their lives, so by floating/filing down the sharp points and waves they develop over the course of their lives, Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center is able to keep the horses teeth balanced and not sharp, which can be painful for them.

 One Weekend, 500 animals, $20 Adoption Special!

The Bradshaw Animal Shelter again teams up for the Empty Our Shelters Project, October 17-19. For this one weekend, pet adoptions are just $20. A goal of adopting 500 animals to loving homes has been challenged for this intensive effort by Sacramento County, Yolo County, Sacramento SPCA, City of Sacramento and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary.

Last year, our area shelters found 526 animals permanent homes in three days and were nationally recognized by the ASPCA. The County’s Bradshaw Animal Shelter stood out with the most adoptions – 179! With unending desire to help animals and a good dose of competitive spirit, the Bradshaw Shelter hopes the community will once again come together to be a part of something big by helping to end homelessness for shelter animals.
