February is Dental Awareness Month, and we are here to help make sure you’re on top of your furbaby’s health. Keeping up with your pet’s dental hygiene is just as important as keeping up with your own. They can get cavities and toothaches, as well as plaque and tarter build-up. This can cause bad breath and even worse, discomfort or infection. Providing your pet with good dental hygiene can add 2-4 years to their life. Bacteria under the gum can travel to the heart, kidneys, and liver. A professional dental cleaning is required to remove plaque and tartar from a pet’s teeth and to assess the health of the mouth. A pet’s bad breath 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. That’s where we come in!
On January 31st, we will be holding a vet talk on how to properly keep up with your pet’s dental health. They will teach you what to look out for and signs that you may need to see a vet and also the general upkeep. This will be held in our Wellness Clinic from 6:30-7:30pm. It is free; you can just show up!
Our vet staff preforms dentals daily so they are experts in how to treat your pet’s dental needs. We provide low-cost dentals from $250-$350 and that also includes extractions and anesthetics. To schedule, call our vet department at 610-566-1370 x3. We will schedule you for a consultation in our Wellness Clinic to first see what needs to be done, and you can chat with one of our vets to get more of an idea what you can expect.
Remember how important it is to keep up with your pet’s health. We are here to help you and your furry little family member. We are proud to be a resource for our community.
