February 2017 is Dental Health Month at LFAH!

Our National Pet Dental Health Month savings of 10% off of ALL dental services applies to any dental cleaning scheduled during February 2017!

Lake Forest Animal Hospital

The condition of a pet’s mouth can have a huge effect on their overall health and happiness. Pets with healthy mouths feel better, eat better, and can even live longer. Loose, rotten, and fractured teeth can be painful, while bad infections of the mouth can cause infections of major organs like the heart, liver, and kidneys. A dental cleaning is the ideal time to perform a full oral exam and check for any growths or changes in your pet’s mouth.Scaling

We understand that many pet owners are apprehensive about placing a pet under anesthesia “just for” a dental cleaning. But the truth is that many pets are living every day with harmful dental disease that can be safely treated. If you have any questions or concerns about the process of cleaning your pet’s teeth, or would like to tour our hospital and see our equipment for yourself, we are always available. We are happy to review our entire process with you, from start to finish, to ensure that you understand all of the precautions we take to keep your pet safe for any anesthetic procedure.

A full dental cleaning and polishing is a large financial investment on the owner’s behalf, and for that reason many owners will postpone a dental cleaning that may appear unnecessary. Oftentimes this results in a cleaning being postponed until a severe degree of dental disease occurs, where rotten teeth must be extracted from a pet’s mouth or dental radiographs taken. Such oral care can cost MUCH more than a cleaning of a healthy mouth, require a longer amount of time under anesthesia, and take a higher toll on the pet’s comfort both before and after the cleaning and extractions.

We encourage you to participate in Dental Health Month with us, to take advantage of the 10% savings and get your pet’s smile sparkling clean! To schedule a dental cleaning, or if you have any questions, just give us a call at 301-740-1083.
