National Pet Dental Month

dog-toothbrushHave you noticed your pet’s breath lately? Bad breath is not normal. It could be harmful to your pet’s health! Dental care is a little known yet absolutely necessary component of caring for your pet. By the age of three, 80 percent of all dogs and 70 percent of all cats show signs of dental disease, which can lead to the more serious problems of heart, lung, and kidney disease. Fido’s dog breath and Tabby’s tuna breath aren’t something to be ignored—they are probably indicative of an oral problem, and the sooner you have it treated by your veterinarian (and learn to care for it yourself), the sooner you and your pet can smile proudly.

In honor of National Pet Dental Month, we would like to offer a free dental check up to see if your pet needs a dentistry as well as $20.00 off of your pets’ dental bill if you call between now and February 28th to schedule.

Signs of periodontal disease:
• Yellow/brownish colored teeth
• Swollen, red, bleeding gums
• Persistent bad breath
• Loose or missing teeth
• Pus between gums and teeth
• Broken teeth
• Unusual growth in the mouth
• Reluctance to play with chew toys, eat biscuits or drink cold water
• Yellow-brown crust of tartar at the gum line

If it is time for your furry friend to have a dental check-up, call us today! Regular dental care is important to your pet’s health and happiness.
