Did you know that periodontal infections have been linked to diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and other life threatening disorders? It is estimated that by the age of 2 years, 80% of dogs and 70% cats will have some form of periodontal disease. Left untreated, your pet faces a future with pain, tooth loss, and preventable disease.
So you’re thinking what can I do? Today there are many options available for pet owners to help prevent or delay periodontal disease from occurring in their pets’ mouth. At Kortright Animal Hospital we offer “Flip-a-Lip” appointments throughout the year for your pet. You will learn the degree of dental disease your pet currently has, and be given information on the best options for prevention and treatment tailored to you and your pet.
A Healthy Mouth = A Healthy Pet = A Happy Pet
Call our hospital today to schedule your cat or dog in for a periodontal assessment. During this visit your pet’s general dental health will be assessed and you will be provided with a dental kit that can start making a difference in their lives.
Together we can help them live better and longer lives!
