Tips for a Healthier Mouth

  • Daily brushing is the BEST oral care regimen you can do for your pet.
  • Daily oral washes/rinses, chew treats (with anti-plaque ingredients), or specialized teeth-cleaning diets (Hill’s Science Diet T/D) are great alternatives to tooth-brushing.
  • Check your pet’s mouth once a month for foul-smelling odors, reddened areas, swollen gums, missing teeth, unusual colors, growths, pus, or abnormal discharge. Let your veterinary know immediately if you see anything unusual!
  • Bring your pet in once a year for a wellness exam; your veterinarian will examine your pet’s mouth thoroughly to make sure there’s no problems that you missed at home. Any issues can be addressed early and taken care of before they get out of hand.
  • Schedule your pet for regular dental cleanings by your veterinarian. Sedating or putting your pet under anesthesia is the safest and most comfortable way to have your pet’s teeth cleaned; when you’re at the dentist, you understand what the doctor is doing even though it’s uncomfortable and can be painful at times. Dogs and cats cannot understand this and will become stressed and may even bite. Most dental disease occurs below the gum line, unseen, so pets need to be sedated and special tools are used to scale the tartar from under the gum line.

At the time of your pet’s last check up, the Doctor spoke to you about your pet’s present dental condition. Dental tater leads to an infection of the gum line called gingivitis, which over time will lead to a serious condition – periodontal disease. This is a painful infection in the mouth causing bad breath, sore throat, and early tooth loss, and can even lead to serious problems affecting the heart, liver and kidneys. This can shorten your pet’s lifespan considerably! Kidney failure is the leading cause of death in older dogs and cats. It is always remarkable to how how much better overall condition an animal stays in as they age if their teeth are maintained in good health. We at Prairie Ridge Veterinary Clinic are strong believers in Dental Health Care for your pet s part of his or her overall health care.

Dental disease needs to be treated now before is progresses and causes further illness. Dental care has saved the lives of more pets than any other medical advancement in the last 20 years. To promote Dental Health Care we are offering a 25% discount off of all teeth cleaning procedures including bloodwork, and all dental services from December 1, 2017 to January 15, 2018 only!

The regular price of the procedure for more advanced cases requiring anesthesia is $198.50, but with the discount the price is reduced to $148.90, a savings of $49.60!

For milder cases requiring sedation only the regular price is $74 for smaller dogs and cats, up to $120 for larger dogs. With the 25% discount the reduced price for smaller dogs and cats would be $55.50, for a saving of $18.50, while the reduced price for larger dogs would be $90.00, making the savings $30.00.
