February is dental month! Our pet’s dental health is very important for the rest of their overall health. Bacteria in the mouth can spread to other areas of the body, leading to infection in the heart, liver, and kidneys. Can you imagine what our teeth would look like if we didn’t brush them every day? 85% of pets have dental disease by the time they are 3 years old.
During the month of February we will be offering 10% off dentistries. On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday you can schedule a complimentary dental assessment for your pet with our registered veterinary technician! And don’t forget to brush your pet’s teeth!
Here are some other tips to maintain your pet’s dental health
– Feed your pet a veterinarian recommended dental diet designed to reduce tooth decaying plaque on the teeth
– Provide veterinarian recommended dental chew toys or treats that help remove plaque buildup.
– Use a veterinarian recommended oral rinse designed for pets to help reduce the bacterial count in the mouth and improve breath.
– Remember to never use people toothpaste on your pets. Many toothpastes designed for humans contain substances that may be toxic to your pets.
ATTENTION: At this time we have new protocols in place to help keep our staff and clients safe and to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
