How important is it to take care of your pet’s dental health? By age three, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some evidence of periodontal disease, which can cause mouth pain, tooth loss and make eating difficult. At advanced stages, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause heart, liver and kidney complications.

On top of the health concerns, stinky pet breath is also really, really gross. This is why your veterinarian regularly checks your pet’s teeth during an exam and may strongly recommend comprehensive dental care including a thorough oral exam and dental x-rays as well as scaling and polishing of your pet’s teeth.

At Briargate Boulevard Animal Hospital, we believe in preventing disease before it becomes a bigger—and more expensive—problem. Because of this, we are offering an exclusive dental promo to our clients throughout the entire month of October: Save $25 on procedures less than $500 or save $50 on procedures more than $500! This special expires on October 31st, so the faster you take care of your best friend’s mouth, the faster you can get healthy kisses from your pet!
