Brushing Up on Your Pet’s Dental Health

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.

This is why your veterinarian regularly checks your pet’s teeth during an exam, and may strongly recommend a dental cleaning or “scaling” procedure. At St. Francis Animal Hospital, we believe in preventing disease before it becomes a bigger—and more expensive—problem.

February is pet dental month, and since we care so much about your pets’ chompers, we are offering a 20 percent discount off dental cleanings if you book your appointment in February!*
