National Dental Month

Many people think that pets and bad breath go hand in hand. However, that is not the case. Bad breath along with difficulty chewing, oral discomfort, and blood-tinged drool are all signs of periodontal disease. By the age of 3, 70% of cats and 80% of dogs have some form of periodontal disease. If left untreated, the bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and damage your pet’s liver, kidneys, lungs, and heart. To prevent this from happening there are several things you can do.
1. Give your pet dental chews. We sell CET chews which have special enzymes to help fight plaque and tarter build-up.
2. Use a drinking water additive that helps fight plaque.
3. Make brushing your pets teeth a daily habit.

If your pet already has plaque and tarter build up the only thing that will remove it is a dental cleaning. This, along with the above home treatments, will help stop any tooth decay your pet may be experiencing. Proper dental care can add 3-5 years to your pets life. In support of National Dental Month, we are offering 15% off any dental cleaning including extractions (if needed) performed in the month of February. Call today to set up an appointment.
