February and September are our Dental Awareness Months! Professional dental care is an extremely important and often overlooked form of preventative veterinary medicine. Poor dental health can result in the obvious bad breath, but left untreated can evolve into a wide variety of problems ranging from tooth loss and pain to weight loss and organ dysfunction. The AVMA (American Association of Veterinary Medicine) continues to promote February as National Dental Awareness Month. We at FFVH support this campaign by offering 50% OFF the standard cleaning price for the entire month of February and September.
Utilizing dental radiographs as a key component of the thorough dental evaluation we strive to provide your pets with state of the art care. Most of your pets teeth are hidden under the gum line and are not visible. Dental radiographs help us to reveal and treat painful dental disease. Below are some examples of the benefits of dental cleaning as well as examples of lesions that would have been missed without dental x rays.
