February is National Pet Dental Health Month, but your pet’s oral hygiene is something to think about year round! Whether you are brushing, using dental treats or rinses, or are thinking about beginning an oral care routine, we can help! The American Veterinary Medical Association and American Animal Hospital Association have linked poor dental health to heart disease, liver disease and kidney disease in dogs and cats. Too often, we see animals come to us with serious health problems as a result of dental disease.
What are the symptoms of dental disease?
• Problems picking up food or toys
• Bloody or ropey saliva
• Not wanting their head touched
• Chewing on one side of the mouth
• Bad breath
• Loose teeth
• Bleeding or red gums
If you would like to have your pet’s dental health assessed, contact our office to set an appointment today! During the month of February we are offering all of our clients a complimentary oral health examination with one of our skilled technicians.*
Each pet who has a dental in the month of March will receive a Goody Bag with
1) Vetradent Dental Cleaning Wipe Sample.
2) Educational Material.
3) CET Vanilla Mint Pet Toothpaste Sample.
4) Pet Toothbrush.
5) CET Oral Health Chew.
6) An entry into a drawing to receive a coupon towards a free dental cleaning service within the following twelve months.**
Make sure to tune into our Facebook and Instagram pages for dental product giveaways through the end of the month of February! If you’ve been waiting, now is the time to get your pet back on the path to excellent oral health!
*Each pet will receive one entry per grade of tartar assigned during the pre-anesthetic exam. So if your pet receives a grade of tartar of 3, they would get three entries into the contest. The more your pet needs a cleaning, the better chance they have of winning the next one!
**Complimentary Dental Cleaning Coupon prize does not include any vaccinations that are required. We can review and discuss your pet’s dental health and advise a plan tailored to your pet’s needs. (Coupon will expire 3/1/2020.)
