February is Dental Health Month
“According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, up to 80% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of 3 years have some form of tooth and gum disease.”
Dental and gum disease can cause bleeding and swollen gums, tooth decay, bad breath, pain, and difficulty eating. If dental disease progresses, it can lead to serious health problems such as liver, heart, or kidney disease. Below are pictures of a dog’s mouth before and after a professional dental cleaning.
We are celebrating National Pet Dental Health Month by offering all of our clients a $20 discount on their pet’s dental cleanings in February!
We are equipped with state-of-the-art dental equipment including digital dental x-rays, Digicare multi-parameter patient monitors, safe patient warmers (Bair Hugger and HotDog), and enamel bonding. Dental x-rays allow us to evaluate the large portion of the tooth that resides below the gumline. They are an invaluable tool for our Doctors to evaluate the health of the entire tooth. Our trained technicians, patient monitors, and patient warmers ensure the safest possible anesthesia for your pet during his/her dental. We now offer enamel bonding which can help seal and preserve minor damage and chips in the teeth.
