February is National Pet Dental Month
Have you been avoiding kisses from your dog because you’re grossed out by the smell? If so, then February is the time to do something about it.
February is National Pet Dental Month. In honor, we’re offering 10% OFF on all dental cleanings. We’ll perform pre-anesthetic blood tests to ensure that kidney and liver function are normal for anesthesia. Tooth scaling will be performed using ultrasonic cleaning equipment to remove tartar both above and below the gum line. The teeth are then polished in order to help prevent subsequent plaque build-up. Of course, it may be necessary to carry out other procedures such as extractions at the same time. Most routine dentals will cost around $320 (discount included).
Get those kisses back and have your dog feeling better than ever with a clean mouth. Call 861- BARK (2275) to schedule your favorite canine’s teeth cleaning today.
