Take Advantage of the SPA’s February Dental Discount

Lani

Trinidad

By Megan Gabel

Did you know that dental care is not only vitally important to your pet’s 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 buildup of plaque. It is the most common ailment affecting cats and dogs and is preventable. According to the American Veterinary Dental College, periodontal disease may also “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.

Your pet can’t tell you about teeth pain. Their instinct is to hide illness or weakness. It is up to you to be vigilant. Here are the signs to look for:

*Bad breath

Loose teeth

Discolored teeth, yellowed from tartar

Chewing from only one side

Drooling or pawing at the mouth

Avoiding your contact with their face

*Loss of appetite or weight

February is dental discount month at the SPA’s clinic. Improve your pet’s dental health and overall health, quality of life, and general well-being by having his teeth cleaned. Trinidad and Lani can attest to the treatment’s effectiveness.

This month, our normal price of 700–1,000 pesos for teeth cleaning (cats and dogs) has been reduced by 20 percent. The price includes anesthetic and professional cleaning with an ultrasonic scaler/polisher. Call 152 6124, Los Pinos 7, for an appointment.

We also have very exciting news about a wonderful opportunity for SPA dogs: an SPA dog volunteer, Tammy Belden, has started a crowdfunding campaign to raise money (US$15,000) to purchase a used but reliable van, dog crates, and other necessities to bring SPA dogs on a regular basis from San Miguel de Allende to the US for adoption. Not only will this result in forever homes for so many SPA dogs, but getting them adopted will create space and allow the SPA to save more dogs from San Miguel’s streets. Please support this effort by donating online at chuffed.org/project/the-dogs-of-san-miguel-de-allende-mexico-need-homes. The campaign is set to end the morning of February 27, so please act now! Thank you!
