Give Your Pet Something to Smile About!

Did you know that it’s currently pet dental month? Also, did you know that last month was also pet dental month, AND next month will be pet dental month? The point is, oral pet care never ends.

Without proper dental hygiene routines, pets develop periodontal disease, which is the most common disorder affecting our pets nationwide. By age three, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some evidence of periodontal disease. At advanced stages, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause heart, liver and kidney complications.

Lack of opposable thumbs means your pet isn’t going to be flossing anytime soon, but bad breath can be banished with regular brushing (done by you) and dental cleanings (done by us).

At West Valley Pet Clinic, we understand the importance of pet dental care, however we also acknowledge that not many clients are aware of how critical this service is. A good way to think about this is to think about yourself—just imagine your teeth without regular brushings and visits to the dentist. Now think about your pet’s mouth.

So, if your pet has very foul breath, or you notice them constantly drooling or refusing to eat, they could be having dental problems. If this is the case, we encourage you to schedule an appointment by calling us at (669) 266-7957 or booking online.

Together, we can improve our pets’ mouths and combat smelly pet breath!
