February is Pet Dental Health Month!

The American Veterinary Dental Society estimates that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral and dental disease by age 3.   In fact, periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition occurring in adult dogs and cats, and is entirely preventable.  Studies indicate that periodontal disease left untreated can cut an average of two years off a pet's life. This is mainly because periodontal disease is a systemic disease that leads to or contributes to a number of other health related problems.

Canfield Vet annual pet appointments include a dental exam by the doctor and advice regarding care of teeth at home.  Maintaining your pet's oral health through regular veterinary exams and at home care is the best way to prevent problems before they arise.

February is national pet dental month and Canfield Vet will place special emphasis on dental health in appointments.  In addition, Canfield will offer 10% discount on all dental procedures and products throughout the month of February.  This is the perfect time to learn about at home dental care for your pet or schedule a dental procedure with one of our skilled doctors!
