Dental Special information

Dental Month

  

Do your eyes water from the noxious fumes emanating out of your pet's mouth?

Have you looked in your pet's mouth, lately?

You may be surprised by what you see!

 

Proper dental care contributes to the good health of your pet. Bad breath, inflamed, bleeding gums, discolored, loose or missing teeth are signs that your pet has dental disease. Left untreated, dental disease can weaken your pet's liver, kidneys and heart. This additional stress can affect your pet's health and shorten life expectancy.

 

Beginning on January 1, 2019 and ending March 31, 2019, we are offering a $30.00 discount off the cost of your pet's dental cleaning. All pet's must be current on an annual physical exam and vaccinations. A blood panel is required to assure the safety of anesthesia. This panel can be done the day of the dental cleaning. If Well Pet lab tests have been done within the past 3 months, no additional blood testing will be required.

 

The Doctor will perform an examination on your pet. A blood sample will be drawn by a technician. If the blood results are normal, your pet will undergo general anesthesia. The teeth are cleaned using an ultrasonic scaler which removes any hard tartar and then the technician will also hand scale the teeth. Finally, your pet's teeth are polished and given a fluoride treatment.

 

We may recommend additional procedures or medications, which are at additional cost. But we will discuss the necessity and cost before any additional work is done! Most pets only need a thorough cleaning to eliminate pain and infection in the mouth. If we have recommended other procedures previously, such as removing a lump, usually, we can take care of that at the same time. Please call us and ask.

 

To help you keep your pet's teeth clean at home, you will receive instructions on how to brush your pet's teeth.

 

Appointments fill up fast, so don't delay. Please call to schedule your pet's appointment today!
