February Dental Month

Periodontal disease is the most common dental condition in dogs and cats – by the time your pet is 3 years old, he or she will very likely have some early evidence of periodontal disease, which will worsen as your pet grows older if effective preventive measures aren’t taken. Early detection and treatment are critical, because advanced periodontal disease can cause severe problems and pain for your pet. Periodontal disease doesn’t just affect your pet’s mouth. Other health problems found in association with periodontal disease include kidney, liver, and heart muscle changes.

It starts with plaque that hardens into tartar. Tartar above the gumline can often easily be seen and removed, but plaque and tartar below the gumline is damaging and sets the stage for infection and damage to the jawbone and the tissues that connect the tooth to the jaw bone. Periodontal disease is graded on a scale of 0 (normal) to 4 (severe).

The treatment of periodontal disease involves a thorough dental cleaning under anesthesia.  Sometimes x-rays may be needed to determine the severity of the disease under the gumline.

Ark pet hospital can help keep your pets teeth healthy and clean.  Did you know that an adult dogs has 42 teeth and an adult cat has 30?  Imagine going 3-5 years without brushing your teeth or going to the dentist.  Call today to schedule a dental cleaning for the month of February and receive 20% off.

"I was referred to Ark Pet Hospital by a friend when I had found an abandoned dog that I decided to welcome into my home. I was unsure of my new pet's medical history, so I took her into their clinic to get a complete physical exam, as well as any necessary vaccinations. Not only did I find their staff extraordinarily friendly and welcoming, but their veterinary services were very affordable. I would recommend Ark Pet Hospital to any and every pet owner in the Twin Cities."

"To all the Staff at Ark Pet Hospital-My cat Sammy had a urinary tract infection, which at first seemed like a big problem, because of the cost. I then met Dr. Mary Philippson, who gave Sammy some meds. which he did not respond to. So the option of putting my cat down was becoming a reality. Then Mary and I talked,...and thankfully she worked with me on the cost of a surgery. The surgery was a success. Sammy is now back home to his old self, playing with the other two cats. This letter is to thank you for everything that was done for my cat, it is priceless."  Sincerely,

Ricky D., New Brighton

"Thank you for caring with so much compassion, especially when I came in last week, shaking my ears after my traumatic grooming experience. Your sweet understanding gave me hope that I'd be all right. I really enjoy seeing you-thank you for seeing me through yearly visits, surgery, and wrapping me in bonnets!"

Love, Opie

"Yes, we absolutely agree with Opie's words. Thank you for being the best for our furry friends! We really appreciate you and your support at a moment's notice."

Erica and Brian
