Did you know dental disease affects 85% of dogs and cats over the age of two? There is a link between bad oral health and heart and kidney disease.

February is National Pet Dental Health Month. In order to express the importance of dental health in our furry companions, we are pleased to offer $35.00 off dental prophylaxis and $10.00 off full mouth radiographs during the month of February!

Symptoms of dental disease are not always obvious. If you suspect your animal is experiencing dental disease some things to look for are:

•Bad breath (halitosis)
•Difficulty eating/ chewing
•Red gums
•Bleeding gums
•Yellow and/ or brown build up on teeth (plaque and tartar)
•Loose or missing teeth
•Facial swelling
•Cranky or aggressive behavior

Fortunately, there are steps that can be taken to help prevent irreversible damage. The earlier you start, the better! Just like with people, annual exams are very important for your pet's overall health. We can help you identify whether or not your pet has dental disease and provide you with the correct tools and education on what you can do to keep your four-legged friend's smile as clean as possible!
