Enticing news makes now the time to join our effort to raise money for food for our animals! An anonymous donor will match every donation to the Pet Food Money Bank up to a total US$2,000 through the month of July! Please help us take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to double the contributions in July. All money raised will be applied to the annual cost of feeding our resident animals and those in foster care (about 100 cats and dogs) as they wait to be adopted. Our goal this year is 250,000 pesos (about US$14,500), and we still have a long way to go. For information on how to donate and more, please see www.spasanmiguel.org/how-you-can-help/pet-food-money-bank/, email info@spasanmiguel.org, or call our office at 152 6124.

Speaking of eating, did you know that dental care is not only vitally important to your pets’ teeth and gums but also to their overall health? Proper dental care contributes to a longer life. Periodontal disease, an inflammation of a tooth’s deep supporting structures, causes the build-up of plaque on the teeth. It is the most common ailment affecting cats and dogs and is preventable. According to the American Veterinary Dental College, periodontal disease may cause problems in the mouth and teeth and be associated with damage to internal organs in some patients as they age. It is often not treated until it is too late and has already done extensive damage.

Lani and Simba, two SPA dogs, recently had their teeth cleaned at the clinic. We couldn’t get them to smile for the camera, but their teeth are sparkling, and their breath is refreshing. Let them give you some kisses (Monday–Saturday, 11–2), and you’ll see for yourself!

Your pet can’t tell you about teeth pain and will instinctively hide illness or weakness. It is up to you to be vigilant. Here are the signs to look for that indicate oral or dental disease:

 

  1. Bad breath
  2. Loose teeth
  3. Discolored teeth, yellowed from tartar
  4. Chewing from only one side
  5. Drooling or pawing at the mouth
  6. Avoiding your contact with their face
  7. Loss of appetite or weight

 

Protect your beloved pet by getting professional teeth cleaning, the purpose of which is to remove plaque and tartar. The SPA has an ultrasonic scaler and polisher. For the entire month of July, our normal price of 700–1,000 pesos for teeth cleaning (cats and dogs) has been reduced by 20 percent (includes anesthetic, professional cleaning, and antibiotic). Improve your pet’s dental health, quality of life, and overall well-being by making a dental cleaning appointment today at 152 6124, Los Pinos 7.
