February is National Pet Dental Health Month
Good oral health is more than just a pretty smile.
Poor dental hygiene can put both your pet's health and your pocketbook at risk. Bad breath can be a sign of untreated dental conditions. If left untreated, you may put your pet at risk for greater problems such as oral pain, periodontitis, kidney or liver infection, and heart disease.
Even if your pet's breath smells fine, there still could be dental conditions that are hard to spot without a complete veterinary exam and oral x-rays. A thorough oral examination can detect hidden health problems such as tooth discoloration, which could be indicative of a decaying tooth, or fractured molars that can be painful. These conditions may lead to tooth extractions if left untreated. Dental x-rays taken during a prophylactic cleaning can uncover conditions below the gum line for a complete picture of oral health.
In honor of Dental Health
We are committed to your pet's health and wellness, and we know that you are as well. Schedule your pet's dental checkup with us today by calling (303) 661-0702. We'll do a comprehensive oral and physical exam to make sure your pet is at optimum health. We can also show you how to brush your pet's teeth in between visits. Brushing is the single most effective thing you can do to keep your pet's teeth healthy between dental cleanings. We will go over oral health diets and products as well.

Our doctors attend dental conferences to stay up to date on the latest in news and technology and we are held to a higher standard because of our American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accreditation.
