Did you know that periodontal disease is the most prevalent disease threatening the health of dogs and cats? It's true! Bacteria common in your pet's mouth, can actually travel to his heart, liver and kidneys and cause life-threatening infections. Sounds scary, but there's a simple solution--good dental care.

Now for a limited time, VCA Shadeland Animal Hospital is making it easier to give your pet needed dental care by offering 20% off of the regular price of our dental package.

Our dental package includes:

  • Complete dental examination.
  • Anesthesia
  • Cleaning and Polishing
  • Recheck and home care consultations.
  • Pre-Anesthetic lab work

More than 80% of pets three years and older have some degree of periodontal disease.. Even if your pet shows no signs of trouble, he could be at risk. Early warning signs of periodontal disease include: bad breath, yellow/brown crust around the gum line and bleeding gums. If not treated, these conditions can progress to pawing at the mouth, changes in chewing or eating habits, tooth loss, subdued behavior and excessive drooling.

Improve the quality of your relationship with your pet and provide them needed dental care by calling 317-547-9697 for a dental appointment.
