  • September is Pet Smile Month

Did you know that gum disease is one of the most common conditions seen in dogs and cats?

A healthy mouth usually has pale pink gums and bright white teeth. However problems will occur if plaque and tartar are allowed to build up on your pet’s teeth. Plaque is naturally sticky and is composed of millions of bacteria which, over time, will lead to inflammation of the gums-a condition called gingivitis.

This is frequently accompanied by the accumulation of calculus (tartar) on the surface of the teeth and very bad breath! Worse still, if left unchecked, this process can result in severe gum disease, dental pain and eventually tooth loss.

Don't let toothache affect your pet's life - please let us advise you on caring for your pet's teeth and gums and how to prevent dental problems. We offer free dental checks all year round but September will be Pet Smile Month. To celebrate this come along to a free dental check and receive a free dental bag for your pet! We are also offering a discount on dental procedures. Contact your local branch to book a free check.
