October is Dental Health Month

The most common disease veterinarians diagnose in pets is periodontal (gum) disease.

 

Periodontal disease affects 95% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of 5! This disease not only causes stinky breath, it can cause bacteria in the mouth to spread to other vital organs, most commonly the heart, kidneys, liver and lungs.

Dental procedures are very important in the maintenance of the health and wellness of your pets. Schedule your pet's dental cleaning today!
