GERMANTOWN, Tenn., Jan. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To raise awareness of pet dental care importance, the doctors at Forest Hill Animal Hospital are offering a 10 percent discount to pet owners for dental visits in honor of National Pet Dental Health Month in February. Even though it is preventable, periodontal disease is the most common oral condition in cats and four out of five dogs over age three have the disease. Forest Hill Animal Hospital, a veterinary clinic in Germantown Tennessee, provides dental services to pets that prevent periodontal disease and more serious health problems from developing, along with the pain and discomfort that often accompanies them. 

Pet parents can look forward to February as it will be National Pet Dental Health Month. Forest Hill Animal Hospital, an animal hospital in Germantown, Tennessee, is celebrating the occasion by offering a 10 percent discount coupon for dental visits throughout the month of February. Besides dental appointments, Forest Hill Animal Hospital provides boarding, grooming, training, light therapy, a full-service pharmacy, and other services.

Periodontal disease begins as gingivitis or inflammation of the gums. This common dental disease often includes inflamed gums, plaque buildup, and bad breath, with the latter being particularly bothersome. Many pet owners, however, aren't aware of the serious consequences of untreated gingivitis, which can lead to periodontal disease and infections of the kidneys, heart, and other organs. However, this condition is preventable with regular veterinary dental visits.

"It's sad to see how many pets suffer from periodontal disease when it can be prevented with consistent pet dental care," says Dr. Darryl Dixon DVM, a Germantown veterinarian at Forest Hill Animal Hospital. "We're hoping that the discount will encourage awareness of how important dental care is for pets. Dental examinations are not a luxury service; they're vital to the whole scope of good health."

Dr. Dixon, DVM also recommends that good dental hygiene in pets begins at a young age much like humans. Regular tooth brushings, teeth cleaning treats, and chewing on toys can all be incorporated into the pet's routine to ensure the longevity of healthy teeth.

Pet owners can receive the coupon at the Forest Hill Animal Hospital website now and throughout the month of February.
