Dental Care

October E-News

Your pet’s dental care doesn’t have to be scary! Did you know that just like people, our dogs and cats get plaque, gingivitis, and ultimately dental disease? Regular dental care is key to keeping your pet happy and healthy for life. The Butte Humane Society Clinic offers affordable dental care for your pets including cleanings and extractions and can provide education on how to care for your pet’s teeth at home! Some facts: By Age 3, 70% of cats and 80% of dogs will have a form of dental disease; “Doggy Breath” is not normal and is a sign of dental disease; Regular dental care can help your pet live up to 20% longer; If left untreated, dental disease can effect your pet’s vital organs. We recommend dental exams for all cats and dogs two years and older, and in-home brushing is recommended 2-3 times a week starting at five months old. If treatment is needed, our veterinarian will create a treatment plan that is customized to fit your pet’s needs. Is your pet over 2 year old and never had a dental exam? Now is the perfect time to get on track with managing your pet’s dental health! Call us to schedule your appointment today at 530-343-7917 x 202.
