Employee learning

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Cassie Alderson, a veterinary assistant at Family Veterinary Clinic, recently attended a 16-hour continuing education seminar on dental health in Vancouver, Wash.

Taught by Dr. Kevin Stepaniuk, a diplomate in veterinary dentistry, the course taught Alderson the importance of starting animal dental care at an early age, according to a news release.

“The best thing you can do for your pet is to brush their teeth and if you are going to brush your pet’s teeth, make sure to use a toothpaste that is approved for pets, human toothpaste can be harmful,” the release said.

Symptoms of dental problems include trouble eating, drooling or licking.

To make an appointment with Alderson, phone 360-452-9682.

The Family Veterinary Clinic is located at 3217 E. Mahogany St. in Port Angeles. It is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.
