Does your pet have morning breath ALL DAY? Have you stopped cuddling with your pet
because of their stinky yawns? If so, it is probably time to discuss their dental hygiene.
Bad breath isn’t just embarrassing, it is often a sign of infection!
We run our Pearly White Dental Month in February of each year, where we offer savings on dental procedures to our clients and patients. This past Dental Month was a great success, as we provided quality dental care to so many pets. Our clients raved about how much more enjoyable kisses became, and how much younger their pets seem now.
We feel strongly about the importance of dental health, and we also acknowledge optimum healthcare can be costly, which is why we continue to offer a DENTAL MONTH SPECIAL all year long. You will receive a 10% discount off your pet’s dental procedure if you schedule the procedure within 30 days of your pet’s comprehensive exam.
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have dental disease by the age of 3. Dental disease (or periodontal disease) is the most frequently diagnosed health problem in pets. Dental disease can also affect other organs in the body: Bacteria in the mouth can get into the bloodstream and cause serious infections in the kidneys, liver, lungs and heart. A physical exam combined with appropriate laboratory work can determine if infection in the mouth has spread.

We can also help show you how to brush your pet’s teeth and recommend foods and treats that will help combat plaque and tartar buildup.
