Time for your pet to have a check-up
WHILE August is the official month focusing on animal dental health across Australia, Chinchilla Vet Services believes it is important enough to highlight in September as well.
Chinchilla Vet Services chose to celebrate its dental health month in September, keeping one of the most common problems in pets firmly in the minds of their owners.
The local business is asking pet owners in the region to seriously consider their pet’s teeth, as it is an issue which can have serious consequences.
Owner of Chinchilla Vet Services, Kara Knudsen, said getting your pet checked could save hassles in the future, including several diseases.
“Dental diseases are easily preventable in our animals but it is the most common problem faced by Australian vets,” she said.
“It can lead to serious health problems.
“Nobody wants their pet to have bad teeth, or any issues.”
Ms Knudsen said she would like pet owners in the community to think of their animals’ health before it was too late, and is encouraging residents to make an appointment for their pet.
“Many of the dental diseases suffered by animals are reversible,” she said.
“However if the problems are left undetected, there can be serious health concerns.”
WARNING: Vets are urging all pet owners to have their animals’ teeth checked.
