Due to a large amount of interest we have extended Dental Month into March!
Have you ever gotten a sniff of your dog or cat’s breath and wrinkled up your nose? All too often, dental care is something that is overlooked with our furry friends. Imagine how your mouth would feel, taste, look and smell if you NEVER brushed your teeth!
Tartar and calculus trap bacteria in and under the gum line, which leads to irritation of the gum tissue (gingivitis) and then periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is sickness of the supporting tissues of the teeth: the ligaments that attach gum to tooth and jaw bone. It is estimated that 85% of cats and dogs have periodontal disease by age four!
Our goal at the Animal Hospital of River Oaks is to educate our clients to becoming proactive on dental health in their pets mouths and to prevent dental disease before it gets too advanced.
Signs of tooth and gum disease in pets include:
refusing to eat or dropping food
rubbing or pawing at the face
loose or broken teeth
red inflamed gums
50% Off Dental Exam and Assessment
20% off Dental Cleanings
Offer extended into March
* Some restrictions apply
Our creative team at the Animal Hospital of River Oaks take pride in providing educational information as well as keeping our River Oaks's Families well informed in up-coming events happening at the hospital!
