February is Pet Dental Care Month! 


Dental care is just as important for your pets as it is for you! National Pet Dental Care month is a great reminder that your dog or cat should have their teeth checked each year.

Both dogs and cats can suffer from the same dental issues that humans do, including broken or chipped teeth, gum disease and infections. In pets, untreated gum disease can lead to major health problems like heart disease and kidney disease, so it’s important to check teeth and have them cleaned. 

To make dental cleanings comfortable and stress-free for your pet, your cat or dog will be given anesthesia so they sleep right through the process. We’ll check for gingivitis and other problems while cleaning your pet’s teeth. 

If there is trouble with your pet’s mouth, you’ll usually see it before we do. Symptoms can include bad breath, difficulty eating, drooling, pawing at the mouth, missing teeth, discolored teeth, reddened gums or even bleeding. 

In February, we offer a $100 off coupon for dental cleaning and scaling. This service is normally $350, but print out and bring in the coupon to have your cat or dog’s teeth cleaned for only $250, not including any needed extractions or unusual problems with the teeth or mouth that require medical treatment. 

If you have any questions about this or any other treatment for your pet, just give us a call at 954-421-2244.
