Fido’s or Fluffy’s bad breath could be the cause of a larger issue brewing. Oral odor might signify a serious health risk, with the potential to damage not only your pet’s teeth and gums but its internal organs as well. To address the significance of oral health care for pets, the AVMA and several veterinary groups annually sponsor National Pet Dental Health Month in February.
To prevent costly issues for you and your pet in the future, we will be offering a $15 dental exam. If your pet does indeed need a dental cleaning or more, we are more than happy to apply the $15 when you come in a scheduled cleaning.
While February is National Pet Dental Health Month, dental health should be a daily ritual for pet owners all year long.
