February is Dental Month!

Dental_Month_Logo_4132020_stdHere at Guildcrest Cat Hospital we are dedicated to the health and well-being of your cat. The prevention and early detection of disease gives us the opportunity to significantly improve your cat’s quality of life and longevity. This is especially true with periodontal (dental) disease which is the most commonly found health problem in our cats. Just like the human members of the family, our four-legged feline members need professional examinations and cleaning too.
In many instances the changes associated with dental disease go unnoticed. Pets may continue to eat and chew normally while coping with an underlying dental problem. Plaque and tartar accumulation can cause bad breath, gum disease, and can increase the risk of infection that may affect other organs in the body; not to mention the severe pain that comes along with dental disease. Early and consistent dental care will help reduce the potential for inflammation, infection, pain and disease for your pet. It is an important part of your felines’ total health care plan.
With all this being said, we’re excited to announce that Dental Month begins on February 1st and lasts throughout the month. During dental month, it is our mission to raise awareness to one of the biggest health problems that our feline friends face, and help those affected get on their way to a happy, healthy and pain free lifestyle. In addition to our regular dental exams we will be offering 10% off all dental procedures, 10% off pre-anesthetic blood work, a chance to win one of three dental month gift package for all felines who undergo a dental procedure.
So give us a call today to book an appointment for dental work or a physical examination that includes a dental exam, as well as a chance for you to discuss with the doctor an appropriate home dental care plan for your cat!
