February is National Pet Dental Health Month, which was started to remind pet owners how important it is to keep our pets’ teeth clean and healthy.
By age three, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some evidence of periodontal disease, which can cause mouth pain, tooth loss, and make eating difficult. At advanced stages, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause heart, liver, and kidney complications.
This is why your veterinarian regularly checks your pet’s teeth during an exam, and may strongly recommend a dental cleaning or “scaling” procedure. At Sheabel Veterinary Hospital, we believe in preventing disease before it becomes a bigger—and more expensive—problem.
Come visit us in February during National Pet Dental Health Month, where you’ll save $50 on your pet’s entire cleaning and they will also get a free nail trim! Additionally, if you bring your animal pal in for a grooming, we are offering a free tooth brushing as well.
