Let us help you get your pet on the road to great oral care in 2012! Pet Dental Health Month is typically talked up & celebrated (if you will) in February every year. But at Michigan Road Animal Hospital we like to start the celebrating early by offering all sorts of specials in January & February. Let’s get your pet on the right track for oral health this month!
So, how often do you brush your pet’s teeth? I myself am guilty of not brushing my cat’s teeth…like ever…and I know the diseases and poor health it can cause a healthy pet. I should know since I work here! And if you are wondering: if the toothbrushing by your pet’s groomer every 4-6 weeks, or if that new stuff you see advertised on TV to “bomb away plaque” (wouldn’t we all just use that instead of seeing our dentists twice a year if it did?), or if some new “sedative-free” dental cleaning by the local pet salon really works? Well, they don’t. If your pet has tartar buildup on his or her teeth then your pets’ Veterinarian is the answer. They ARE your pet’s dentist. They know what your pet needs and can make the right recommendations based on a thorough oral examination.
Did you know that most pets have already developed periodontal disease by the age of three? That’s scary! Your pet has so many years to live…who wants to live with a painful mouth, or develop other horrible conditions like heart disease or kidney failure? I know I don’t want that to happen to my pet! Professional dental care with a Veterinarian and a regular at-home routine will help your pet enjoy a longer, healthier life. Plus it keeps your pet’s breath fresh for more “enjoyable” kisses. From now through this February we are pleased to offer the following: complimentary dental exams, discounted dental cleanings, and 15% off dental products.
So how do you know if your dog or cat has a dental problem? Some signs are bad breath, brown or yellow teeth, excessive drooling, bleeding from the mouth, or a change in eating and drinking habits. A dental exam is the best way to determine your pet’s need for a dental cleaning if you are not sure. And remember, right now those oral examinations are completely FREE!
