Keeping your pet healthy starts with a great smile!! Pet Dental Specials Hollywood Animal Hospital is offering 20% off a dental cleaning & discounted dental products! Schedule your pet's dental evaluation before March 31st

Here are some reasons why dental care is so important for your pet: 

1. A pet with healthy teeth equals a pet with better breath!

2. Dental disease can actually lead to problems with your pet’s organs, such as the heart.

3. Retained baby teeth can cause problems in pets too! Did you know that full grown dogs have 42 teeth and full grown cats have 30 teeth? Before their adult teeth grow in, though, their baby teeth have to fall out. Sometimes, not all of the baby teeth want to come out. This can lead to problems like gum irritation and tartar buildup.

4. Caring for your pet’s teeth can prevent other health problems, saving you tons of money over the long term!
5. You need regular dental care and you brush your teeth everyday – why wouldn’t your pets? Your veterinarian and these handy videos can help you learn to brush your dog's teeth and your cat's teeth.
6. Did you know that 4 out of 5 dogs over the age of 3 years have some sort of periodontal disease? It can be caused by the buildup of plaque, so it’s important to go in for regular dental checkups and cleanings. 

7. Pets that don’t get dental care can painfully lose their teeth – this can be terribly painful and cause serious health problems.

8. Your dog and cat are very good at hiding pain – you might never know that your pet has a serious dental problem until it’s very advanced. This is yet another reason it’s important to take your pet in for regular dental checkups.

9. Teeth wear out! Your pets are tough on their teeth. 

10. Periodontal disease affects up to 80% of all adult pets. It is 2.4 times more expensive to treat dental disease than to prevent it.

Message of Thanks!

Just a message to say thank you to everyone at VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital. Dorie's diagnosis took a lot of work and diagnostics to be found. I thank everyone that worked around the clock to determine the cause of her illness. The treatment provided kept Dorie comfortable in an illnesses that otherwise would have caused pain. Unfortunately, as great as modern medicine is (human and veterinary), some illnesses just don't have a cure. On November 17, 2016, Dorie passed away. Everyone in the hospital responded as if it was their own pet...they made one of my hardest days a little easier. I thank everyone on staff for their support and compassion. I feel such a sense of pride that I am fortunate to work with such wonderful people.

 Sincerely, Candice
