Savings Special for Pet Dental Health Month

February is Pet Dental Health Month. So to celebrate, 5 Points Animal Hospital is offering 15 percent off of our pet dental cleaning services for the entire month. Contact us now to make your appointment! According to VetStreet, approximately 85 percent of all pets end up suffering from gum disease by the time they are three years old. What’s the best way to prevent this from happening? Have your pet’s teeth and gums professionally cleaned at the vet’s office. We would like to tell you more about our pet dental cleaning services.

What is involved during a pet dental cleaning?

When your pet comes into 5 Points Animal Hospital for a professional dental cleaning, we will remove the plaque and tartar from your pet’s teeth. In addition, we assess his or her overall oral health. Even if you are brushing your pet’s teeth at home on a regular basis, it is impossible to get a thorough cleaning without the use of general anesthesia. This allows our veterinarians to be able to remove the plaque and tartar underneath your pet’s gums and keep your pet out of pain during this process.

How often should I have my pet’s teeth professionally cleaned?

We recommend that you schedule this service once a year. Making this appointment during the month of February is convenient, as it is Pet Dental Health Month. So, you will be able to benefit from our savings special! Your pet may also need a professional cleaning more often. Especially if he or she is showing any signs of gum disease. These signs include bad breath, drooling, difficulty chewing, or missing teeth.

What are the dangers of gum disease to pets?

Like humans, gum (or periodontal) disease can result in losing teeth. If left untreated, it can also lead to more serious diseases in other parts of the body. Gum disease is caused by bacteria that is not removed from the teeth. This bacteria can get into your pet’s bloodstream. When this happens, the bacteria will travel to other organs, including the heart, kidneys, and liver. This can cause serious infections. This is why it is so important to take care of your pet’s teeth by scheduling an annual appointment for a professional dental cleaning.

Take advantage of our special for Pet Dental Health Month this February. Contact us at 5 Points Animal Hospital for a free Dental Exam or to schedule an appointment for a professional pet dental cleaning this month and save 15 percent!
