Save Money on Your Pet’s Dental Care


Spanish Trail Pet Clinic in Tuscon, AZ wants to help you be proactive about your pet’s dental health to lower the risk of gum disease. That’s why we offer comprehensive dental services to help keep your pet’s mouth healthy, and for a limited time, we’re offering a great deal on dental care! For the month of September, we’re offering a FREE pet dental exam, $77 off the routine dental cleaning, AND a doggie bag that includes a toothbrush and toothpaste for your pet, along with Hill’s teething treats!

Why Your Pet Needs Regular Dental Care

Since the status of your pet’s mouth is often an indicator of their overall health, oral health should never be neglected. By just 3 years of age, more than 50% of all dogs and cats in the country have some form of gum disease. Left untreated, this disease can eventually affect the heart, liver, and kidneys, potentially shortening a pet’s lifespan. That’s why it’s so important to bring your pet to our clinic at least once a year for a dental exam so we can determine if a full cleaning is necessary. And remember, you can get your pet’s September dental exam absolutely FREE, save on the dental cleaning, and get a free doggie dental goodie bag!

With our complimentary toothbrush, toothpaste, and teething treats, you can help prevent gum disease and other oral problems for your pet between their visits to our clinic. Our team will be happy to give you tips on brushing as well as how to best establish at an-home hygiene regimen for your pet, with consideration to age, breed, lifestyle, and oral health status.


Common Signs of Gum Disease

While some symptoms of gum disease are obvious, there are others that are more subtle and can be overlooked if you’re not paying close attention. Below is a list of some of the most common signs of gum disease in pets. If your pet shows any of these signs, it’s time for a dental exam and possibly a routine cleaning.

  • Bad breath
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Loose or broken teeth
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Excessive drooling

Gum disease may be one of the most common pet diseases, but as a pet owner, you can prevent it for your furry companion.
