February is Dental Health Month!

The prevention and early detection of dental disease gives us the opportunity to significantly improve your pet's quality of life and longevity. Periodontal disease (dental) disease is a common health problem in our pets. Clinical Studies have shown that periodontal disease is linked with other serious systemic health issues, including heart disease, kidney failure and diabetes!

We are dedicated to the health and well being of your pet - including his/her teeth!

In many instances, the changes associated with dental disease go unnoticed - pets continue to eat and chew normally while coping with an underlying dental problem. Plaque and tartar accumulation can cause bad breath, gum disease and can increase the risk of an infection that may affect other organs in the body. This is why it is so important that your pet has a regular dental examination, which should be a part your pet's complete physical examination during his/her annual wellness exam.

Our dental focus is to ensure your pet:

  • has healthy teeth and gums,
  • does not have pain eating, and
  • has a lowered risk of developing other health issues that start with oral health problems.

Because February is Dental Health Month, we are helping you and your pet with

  • complimentary dental health assessments,
  • 50% off dental X-Rays,
  • complimentary consults to help you learn about prevention and home care, and
  • incentives for all dental procedures.

Not sure if your pet's teeth need to be cleaned?

Come in for a dental assessment to see if your pet qualifies for our routine professional cleaning, to verify vaccination status or other health concerns and to discuss the process of getting your pet's teeth cleaned. From our experience, as pets age, they have more dental disease, so it is very important to have their teeth checked with every annual exam. Geriatric pets are more susceptible to secondary illness if they have dental disease.

Why are dental X-rays important?

Even after a thorough cleaning, the majority of the tooth still cannot be examined with the naked eye. Dental x-rays allow veterinarians to look inside the whole tooth above and below the gum line. The socket that the tooth sits in can also be examined. This is the only way to examine the full tooth, short of removing it!
