Dental CareLet’s talk teeth... Some of you have cats or dogs with beautiful, sparkling, pearly-whites and healthy gums. If you’re one of these people, then lucky you! You’re in a perfect position to start preventative dental care for your pet! You see, we veterinarians don’t take much pleasure from extracting teeth. It’s really not that fun. We’d rather they stay healthy and in their proper place – your pet’s mouth. Not on our countertop.
Lab and X-Rays
Equine VetDr. Benoit Bouchet joined Aztec Animal Clinic in 2010 and in 2015 became one of the owners at Aztec. He received his DVM from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After completing a private practice internship with San Luis Rey Equine Hospital in Southern California, he headed to New Mexico with his wife Sofia, his Australian Shepherd, Katie, and two tabby cats Samson and Annie. Dr. Bouchet worked as an equine veterinarian for 5 years before realizing he really missed working with companion animals. He enjoys all aspects of small animal medicine, but has a particular interest in ophthalmology, dentistry, and internal medicine.
Chronic Condition Treatment
Hip Dysplasia TreatmentDr. Argeres focuses on orthopedic and neurological issues, along with ailments related to aging, such as hip dysplasia, arthritis, geriatric muscle wasting and incontinence. Please contact Dr. Argeres for more information or to schedule an appointment at Argeres Animal Alternatives.
Heart Disease TreatmentThe sterile surgical room is adjacent to the treatment area, and can be viewed through a large window. The room is equipped with special lighting, anesthesia machines, monitoring equipment (EKG, blood pressure and body temperature, pulse oxygen levels), and surgical instruments.
Periodontal Disease TreatmentThe benefit to having a professional dental cleaning/evaluation done earlier rather than later is that if periodontal disease is not too advanced, sometimes we can save the tooth! If a periodontal pocket is not too deep, and if the tooth root looks healthy on x-rays, then we can place antibiotic packing material into the pocket after we scale away tartar below the gum line. The goal is to potentially allow the gingiva to re-attach to the tooth. Some tooth fractures can be sealed to help prevent an abscess from developing down the road. Sometimes, a tooth may have the potential to be saved via root canal; this is a technique performed by a board-certified veterinary dental specialist. If we encounter any teeth that are candidates for this procedure, we will offer a referral.
Wound and Fracture Care

The receptionist was rude and had the worst attitude. She is the reason I do not go there anymore.
