February is National Pet Dental Health Month

Every February, the staff of Animal Medical Clinic spends extra time educating about the importance of oral health.

Good oral health is more than just a pretty smile.

Poor dental hygiene can put both your pet’s health and your pocket book at risk. “Dog breath” – or a cat with a foul-smelling mouth – can be a sign of untreated dental conditions. If left untreated, you may put your pet at risk for greater problems such as periodontitis or heart disease. 

Routine cleanings can help prevent periodontal disease and save money in the long run.  A 2014 analysis conducted by Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. showed that the average cost per pet to prevent dental disease is just one-third of the average cost of treating dental disease.

More importantly, a complete oral examination can detect hidden health problems. Even if your pet’s breath smells fine, there still could be dental conditions that are hard to spot without a complete veterinary exam.

During the event, we not only offer education on oral health we want to go a step further by offering some incentive.  We offer free oral examinations where we will do a thorough checkup to make sure your pet is at optimum health. We also can show you how to brush your pet’s teeth. Brushing is the single most effective thing you can do to keep your pet’s teeth healthy between dental cleanings.  If a dental cleaning is recommended, we are offering special savings on professional dental cleanings.

We’re committed to your pet’s health and wellness, and we know that you are as well. Book your appointment today!
