"Peanut has had bad teeth his entire life as the result of a puppyhood illness. When he got down to 4 teeth, I assumed we could forgo dental exams and move forward with soft food and a floppy tongue. Not so! Our regular vet referred us to Dr. Battig when we noticed that Peanut’s gums were really inflamed. It turns out that our beloved ‘Nut needed his last four teeth out AND several residual roots removed. I balked at the cost, but went through with the procedure. I thought Peanut had been slowing down because he was aging (he’ll be 9 soon), but I was mistaken. After Peanut recovered from his procedure, he was renewed-- he’s got more energy and ALL of his former piss and vinegar back. I didn’t realize how poorly he must have felt or how his energy was being affected by his poor dental health, but post-procedure, I was able to see the difference! Dental care is expensive, but what a difference it makes! Thank you Dr. Battig for helping the ‘Nut get his groove back."

"Rudy is a our miniature Dachshund that we adopted four years ago from the Oregon Dachshund Rescue. He had a rough go before we got him, with severe abuse and neglect. He also was severely underweight and had failure to thrive when we adopted him. I knew however that he was the one for me, the day I first saw him at the rescue. Initially, Rudy would hide from my husband Mark and I, by going in a bedroom and hiding under the bed covers. We would always go and get him and say "it is family time Rudy." Gradually after about two years, this changed and he freely would interact with our family. Never would Rudy play with toys since we got him, and he has always been a bit lethargic……even with the best vet care. When I would walk him in the park many people would tell me "your dog is too thin, and you need to feed him." Recently Rudy underwent surgery at the Animal Dental Clinic with Dr. Battig to remove almost all of his teeth. I was very worried and sad for him initially. I was also worried he would go back to being underweight since I had worked so hard to get him healthy. Since that time Rudy truly is a different dog! He has more energy and has been very playful with his sister's Annie and Amelia. He is so energetic that our oldest miniature Dachshund Annie has even growled at him a time or two to settle down! That has never happened before. He is also maintaining a healthy weight.
The other day we actually saw Rudy run through the house with a stuffed dog toy and throw it in the air! He was trying to engage his youngest sister Amelia to play with him. She did and they both began running through the house playing over the toy! It has brought tears to our eyes to see what a different dog Rudy has become. He chases his tail, kisses a lot………and his breath smells much better! I wish he could have told me how sore his teeth and gums were. We are so glad he is better now! A whole different dog!
The care Rudy received was amazing! Dr. Battig had Rudy spend the night with her the first night of his surgery in case he needed any additional pain medication. The entire staff was kind, empathetic and very informative. I also say kudo's to the wonderful anasthesiologist Dr. Shafford. She phoned prior to the surgery to explain everything, and she phoned on three separate occasions after just to check on Rudy! Thank you so much to all of you! Rudy say's thank you for giving him a new life!!!
