February is National Pet Dental Health Month

Good dental health is more than just a pretty smile.

Poor dental health can put both your pet’s health and your pocketbook at risk. “Dog breath”—or a cat with a foul-smelling mouth—can be a sign of untreated dental conditions. Without treatment, your pet may be at risk for pain and other health problems. 

Routine cleanings can help prevent periodontal disease and save money in the long run. A 2013 analysis conducted by Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VPI) showed that the average cost per pet to prevent dental disease is just one-third of the average cost of treating dental disease.

Also important, cleanings allow for a complete examination of the mouth, which can detect hidden health problems. Even if your pet’s breath smells fine, there still could be problems that you can’t see, but we can spot during a cleaning.

Schedule your pet’s dental checkup with us now. We’ll perform a thorough exam to make sure your pet is healthy, and recommend a professional cleaning if needed. We also can show you how to brush your pet’s teeth. Brushing is the single most effective thing you can do to keep your pet’s teeth healthy between dental cleanings.

We’re committed to your pet’s health and wellness, and we know that you are as well. We offer 20% off all dentals for the entire month of February! Book your appointment today!
