Have you looked in your pet's mouth lately? Why not? Bad Breath? That could be caused by plaque and tartar on your pet's teeth and gums. 85% of dogs will have periodontal disease by the age of 3!!! Yes, 3! Plaque and Tartar can lead to bad breath, tooth pain, loss of teeth and infection. The infection can travel to the heart, lungs, liver and other vital areas. Tooth infection can lead to death. It is hard to imagine.
Preventative care is not hard! Nor does it have to break the bank.
One day each month our shop hosts, Julie Shinew, a dog and cat dentist. She has been cleaning and scaling pet teeth for over 30 years. She started cleaning teeth as a vet-technician. There is no sedation involved. Julie uses massage and relaxation techniques to calm your pet before cleaning. Julie will also provide you with a toothbrush and daily techniques to keep your dog's and cat's teeth clean.
If you have a dog or cat that is not a candidate for anesthesia, then this is for you. I had my 19 year old schnauzer done every 6 months from when he was 14 because I did not want to put him under anymore. I truly believe this was a factor to his long life. (RIP Bosun)
