Did you know that February is National Pet Dental Month?
According to research, approximately 85% of all dogs show signs of periodontal disease by the age of three. Bad breath, tooth loss, and discomfort when chewing may be signs your dog has periodontal disease. As with many health issues, prevention is key. A professional dental cleaning at your veterinary office is required to remove plaque and tarter build-up as well as treat gum disease. Like humans, however, regular teeth brushing can significantly help with preventive dental care and keep your pet’s mouth healthy in between check-ups at the vet.
The Beached Dog is here to help you stay on top of regular dental care. We offer teeth brushing as an add-on grooming service for $10. But for the month of February, we’re offering this service for only $5! Just let us know when you call to book your dog’s appointment this month if you’d like to take advantage our teeth brushing special.
