February is National Pet Dental Awareness Month, and a time where most veterinary clinics focus more on our pet’s dental hygiene and preventative oral care than any other time of the year.
The staff at College Manor Veterinary Hospital feel dental care plays a very important part in helping your pet live a long and happy life and is something that should be focused on every single day. That being said, we have decided to devote January 15th through March 15th as our Pet Dental Focus months every year.
What does this mean for to you as a client of College Manor Veterinary Hospital you may ask?
Our focus is on the prevention of dental disease and educating you, the pet owners, on how to achieve good oral care at home and strengthening that strong bond you have already developed with your 4 legged friends.
One of our three wonderful veterinarians, Dr. Donais, Dr. Bruch and Dr. Allison would be more than happy to see you and your special animal companion at any time to perform a comprehensive dental exam. While there is a nominal fee for this exam, if they find your pet would benefit from a general dental cleaning (and you schedule the procedure within 3 months of your initial exam), we will happily credit this fee towards your pets dental procedure. If you are interested in setting up a dental exam with one of our veterinarians, please call the office at (905) 853-4706 or send an email appointment request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Every pet that has a dental exam performed during our Dental Health Focus will be entered to win a $100 credit on their account! Additionally, (just to let you know how serious we feel that good dental health is for every pet), all animals that have a dental cleaning done at our office during the focus period will also be automatically entered to win a $250 credit on their account. That means you could have not one but TWO chances to win!!
Our Registered Veterinary Technicians are also always available to lend a helping hand if you need some tips on how to brush your pet’s teeth, or you wish to discuss preventive oral care through diet or by the addition of water additives such as Healthy Mouth (www.healthymouth.com).
According to the Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have periodontal disease by the age of three! On the flip side of things though, proper dental care can increase your pet’s life by two to five years so please give us a call to schedule your pet’s dental exam TODAY!!
