Pet Dental Health Month

February is National Pet Dental Health Month!

Did you know that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of dental disease by the age of 3?
“Dog breath” is not a laughing matter—for dogs OR cats. In fact, bad breath is one of the earliest indicators of dental disease! Other signs include red, bleeding, irritated gums; tartar accumulation; changes in chewing or eating habits; tooth loss; and even behavioral changes, like irritability and depression.  Unfortunately, untreated dental disease has been shown to contribute to liver, kidney, and heart disease, and is estimated to reduce life expectancy by 20%!

Top 3 benefits of dental care for your pet:

3) Fresh breath! (Which means fresh dog and cat kisses!)

2) Treatment and prevention of painful gingivitis, infection, and tooth loss

1) Longer, happier, and healthier lives!

In celebration of National Pet Dental Health Month, Cheyenne River Animal Hospital is offering *free dental exams* and a 15% discount on dental prophylaxis during the month of February.  Add years of smiles to your pet’s life and schedule your free dental exam today!

Our goal and policy is to treat our clients with respect and care, and to treat our clients’ pets as though they were our own.  Our clients and patients are the heart of our practice and the reason we are here.  At all times you will be treated with respect, dignity and compassion.  Being of service to you is the mission of our practice.

We are here for you!!!  We have made some great strides to provide great service to our clients.  By starting this blog, it is just one more way we can get information to you.  While we serve a large area, we want everyone to feel as if they are getting our personal recommendations. 

To start, let me tell you about us:
We are a mixed animal veterinary clinic in Edgemont, SD.  We serve southwest South Dakota, eastern Wyoming, and northwest Nebraska.  Our team is made up of 3 veterinarians Dr. Stephanie Stevens, Dr. Erica Koller, and Dr. Carlie Koonce.  The support staff includes 6 willing workers who do everything from answer phones to restrain animals (Anne, Edna, Alicia, Ashiley, DeeDee, and Lacy).  We can’t forget about Pete, the clinic cat. 

We try to keep busy (it isn’t our nature to sit around wait for the phone to ring).  So we may not post at regular times, but we will try and update you as often as we can.
