Tis the Season for Canine Flu

If you’re a pet parent, you’ve undoubtedly wondered if dogs can get the flu. Indeed they can. The canine influenza virus (CIV) is not the flu that you are thinking of. Your dog won’t vomit, get the chills or experience muscle aches like you do. CIV is a contagious respiratory disease that is quite easily passed from dog to dog. Symptoms The symptoms of CIV are very similar to kennel cough, but the disease may seemingly take on a life of its own, causing some dogs to exhibit more severe symptoms. When your dog has CIV, it may cough, sneeze, produce thick, yellowish-green nasal discharge, lose its appetite, develop a fever, and experience lethargy. Susceptibility Pet owners typically wonder if their dogs are susceptible to CIV. Your Alexandria VA veterinarians...

Are medical weight loss programs more effective than dieting alone?

For successful long-term weight loss, there is a huge distinction between “dieting” and “life-style changing”.  When a person thinks about going on a “diet”, this usually implies a start date, at which time the person will commit him/herself to lowering caloric intake and exercising more.  The result of these efforts will be the loss of weight.  If the affected person is persistent enough, significant weight loss will occur.  Clothes will fit much better, the person will receive compliments and some health issues will become better. “Fad” diets, liquid diets, meal replacements and other short term “dieting” solutions may produce the initial weight loss, but the chances of long-term success utilizing these methods are slim-to-none. ...

Can Teeth be Replaced in One Day?

We receive many inquiries about having any one of the Teeth in One Day procedures performed. Most dental patients are candidates for this form of treatment. However, it is a very sophisticated procedure, which needs to be carefully thought out and performed. Frequently, when the patients come to our Washington DC dental implant office for an opinion, this procedure has already been recommended to them. This has been done without first having adequate records taken. Last week we saw a patient who had gone to one of the teeth in a day clinics of a national chain having been given the recommendation to extract all of his teeth and have them replaced with four implants in each arch. First of all, a panoramic X-ray was the only documentation that he was given, which...
