Puppy Preschool is held in the Education Room at Animal Hospital of North Asheville.
At the Animal Hospital of North Asheville, we feel that your pet’s dental health is extremely important to his or her quality of life. When your pet has healthy teeth, he or she feels great. Each time one of our veterinarians examines your pet, a complete dental check-up is performed. If tartar or dental plaque is found, we have the finest equipment for cleaning your pet’s teeth. Periodontal prevention typically includes ultrasonic scaling, subgingival manual scaling, and polishing. Veterinary dentistry is very different from the equivalent process in people. For most of us, caring for our teeth and gums has been part of our daily routine for as long as we can remember. Consequently, a person’s visit to the dentist is relatively brief and does not require sedation, tests or anesthesia. In contrast, veterinary dentistry is considerably more involved, time-consuming, and complex. It requires general anesthesia, and consequently a day’s hospitalization as well as the skills of several people, from veterinarians to veterinary technicians and animal attendants.
The two most important days in your life with your pet are the day you say hello for the first time, and the day you say goodbye for the last time. We at Animal Hospital of North Asheville will do everything we can to make the final goodbye as peaceful and easy as possible for you and your pet.

Happy Holidays from everyone at Animal Hospital of North Asheville!
At Animal Hospital of North Asheville, we realize that the love your pet has for you is unique, and that there is no real substitute for the love and reassurance that you provide. We know that your presence is comforting to your pet and that many people also find comfort in seeing exactly what their pet experiences. For that reason, almost all areas of our hospital are set up for a family member to accompany each pet whether the treatment is being performed as an outpatient visit or during hospitalization. Of course, we also realize that many people find medical settings stressful and do not wish to be present while blood is drawn or treatments are performed, so we are very good at giving treats and hugs and lots of TLC to keep our patients happy even when their family is not there. It is totally up to you whether you accompany your pet or not.**Please be aware that Animal Hospital of North Asheville will often be seeing patients while classes are in progress, so some of our parking will be reserved for the families of patients needing care.
