National Dental Month, February 2013

Our dental month for February 2012 was so successful that it ran into the month of March! To help our clientele, this year we will not only offer a special discount for February 2013, we will honor all appointments made in February 2013 if we run out of surgery appointments for February. To take advantage of the 20% discount call to set up a surgery appointment with one of our doctors.

smiling_zebras.jpgWhen a pet is older than 2 years, has offending breath and or never had a dental, a dental examination and consultation is required to allow the doctor to give an accurate estimate. Another benefit in having a doctor perform an exam is that oral infections can lead to other organ problems including heart problems and a doctor can help address that issue as well.

Our dental surgeries have different grades on which the price is based on. If you have not been in recently for a visit, you may call and schedule an exam and we will give you an estimate for a dental grade for your pet. The doctor may also take the opportunity to begin antibiotics before hand if needed. Our dental surgeries include pre-anesthetic exam, pre-anesthetic blood work, IV catheterization, Iv fluids, EKG and blood pressure monitoring, pulseoximeter and anesthetic nursing during the procedure, a pain management package for the procedure, pain medications to go home when needed (for your pets comfort), antibiotics when needed, and digital dental x-rays. Tooth extractions and gum suturing is an additional fee. These procedures meet Dr. Ahrens’s and Veterans Memorial Drive Animal Hospital's standard of care. In summary- in response to the AVMA’s promotion of National Pet Dental Month in February, we offer you and your pet the same quality care with the benefit of a discount.

All dental surgeries will be scheduled for our doctors’ normal surgery days. So please call us to find out what day is convenient for you.

Hope to see you soon,

Tony Miranda, Practice Manager

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I’ve been coming here for over 25 years and with over a dozen pups. I’ve moved 4 times and regardless of distance VMDAH is the only choice for me."
    Bob N.
  • "I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Crist and Veterans Memorial Drive Animal Hospital. I have NEVER been to a doctor (especially a veterinarian) who took a full hour to do an exam and history. I was so impressed with the time taken and genuine concern that Dr. Crist had for my kiddo. I am so happy that they provide alternatives to traditional veterinarian medicine like chiropractic, acupuncture and supplements. I highly recommend VMDAH!"
