85% of Dog and Cat Have Periodontal Disease
As pet parents, we want our animals to be happy, healthy, and well-loved. We make sure we get them vaccinated and provides essentials need to grow, but sometimes we forget about an important part of their health: keeping their teeth clean.
Just like humans, pets need preventative dental care to keep from developing periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is very common in dogs, in fact, 85% of all pets have periodontal disease by the time they are 3 years old. This happens because plaque builds up on their teeth and hardens, leading to inflammation in their gums and other tissues surrounding their teeth. Unlike humans, animals do not brush their teeth every day so they’re unable to remove plaque before it hardens. This can lead to pain, bleeding gums, and tooth loss, as well as leave them susceptible to serious infections. The good news is, periodontal disease is preventable and treatable by regular dental cleaning.
That is why we at Wishbone Pet Care partner with Healthy Smile Pet Dental to offer affordable, non-anesthetic dental cleanings for dogs and cats once each month. We’ve chosen non-anesthetic dental cleaning because we know that 1 in 1,000 cats and 1 in 2,000 dogs die under anesthesia each year. It is recommended that pets have their teeth cleaned every six months. You shouldn’t have to worry about losing your pet to anesthesia complications every six months, when you’re just trying to take the necessary steps to prevent your pet from developing periodontal disease. We put the safety of our animals first and strive to provide the safest and most comfortable experience for your pets.
Our next day for non-anesthetic dental cleaning is Thursday, April 11, 2019. The procedure takes roughly 45 mins-1 hour and is performed by one of highly-trained pet dental hygienist. Small/medium dogs or cats (40 lbs and under) will cost $150 and large dogs (over 40 lbs) will cost roughly between $175 - $200.
Give us a call at (281) 208-2708 to book an appointment or walk in between 10am - 12pm for free pet dental consultation.
