Sugar Mill Veterinary Center Encourages Pet Dental Care

Jan. 29, 2009 – Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets. Although daily tooth brushing is advised for dogs and cats, the reality is that only two percent of dog owners follow through. In addition, 65 percent of dogs with stage one periodontal disease often go untreated because veterinary health care teams do not recommend needed treatment options like dental exams, professional dental cleaning and dental x-rays. This can lead to systemic health problems, which can cause serious damage to other areas of the pet's body.
Sugar Mill Veterinary Center is pleased to take an active role in the 15th Annual Pets Need Dental Care, Too™ part of the 2009 Pet Dental Health Campaign. To help pet owners on St. Croix, the center is offering 20 percent off dental procedures for cats and dogs during February.
Sugar Mill Veterinary Center is located at 4220 La Grande Princesse, Christiansted. For information call 718-0002 or fax 718-0003 or visit: www.sugarmillvetcenter.com
