Dental Cleanings and FYI

We have always taken pride in that we offer low-cost dental procedures (ultrasonic scaling and polishing). We have even been asked " why are they so cheap (my least favorite word). During a dental at our clinic, the pet is protected with a thorough exam, high quality sedative, tubes and monitors. We do not feel dentals should be cost-prohibitive. That said, we are going up by $10.00 per dental to cover the increase in cost that we have incurred in dental supplies, therefore' TAKE ADVANTAGE THIS MONTH!!!
