Dental Disease: Fighting The Good Fight

 Periodontal Disease, more commonly known as Dental Disease, is one of the most common conditions we see here at Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod.  Once periodontal disease begins, the degenerative changes to the tooth and its support structures are irreversible.  Those changes then make it easier for plaque and tartar to build up resulting in further progression of the disease.
    In order to better serve our patients and our clients, Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod has introduced our Periodontal 1-2 Package.  Oral health is important to overall health!  And the longer we wait to take care of our pet's teeth, the more advanced periodontal disease becomes.
     Right now for any pet getting an early grade periodontal procedure we are offering a 36% discount in cost.  This comes out to $169.00 off, and it includes a complete examination of the oral cavity, anesthesia, ultrasonic scaling, teeth polishing, intravenous catheter placement, intravenous fluid administration for the entire procedure, as well as our advanced anesthesia monitoring by a trained staff member and state of the art equipment!
     Digital X-rays and extractions are additional to the cost, but it is our hope that by getting your pet into the clinic before they have advanced periodontal disease they will not need the more costly x-rays and traumatic extractions.
    If you have any questions or comments, we'd love to hear from you!  Please visit our website at, or give us a call at 508-394-3566!
