FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL PET DENTAL MONTH
We at Lincolndale Veterinary Center would like to take the time to wish you and your pets a happy and healthy new year. We also want to make sure that you are aware that February is National Pet Dental Health Month.
Dental disease begins with plaque, a soft, colorless, sticky film that results from the combination of food debris, bacteria and saliva. If plaque is not removed it mineralizes and forms calculus. You may have noticed this hard brown material on your pets teeth and the bad breath that accompanies it. If plaque is allowed to build up and not removed, it can lead to gingivitis, an inflammation of the gum line, which is painful to your pet. Left untreated, periodontal disease may cause oral pain, loose teeth, decreased appetite and severe oral infections. As periodontal disease progresses, the gums recede, allowing bacteria to travel through the bloodstream to other parts of the body. These bacteria can cause disease in the heart, liver and kidneys.
During the month of February, in honor of National Pet Dental Health Month, we will offer a 15% discount on all dental procedures. We will honor the 15% discount for any appointment scheduled this month and completed by March 30, 2018. Please contact our office to schedule your pets dentistry at 914 248-5050.

FDA ISSUES WARNING AFTER 90 ILLNESSES AND 15 DEATHS REPORTED FROM DOG BONE TREATS**
The FDA has received about 68 reports of pet illnesses due tobone treats. Treats that are processed and packaged for sale as dog treats. This includes treats described as ham bones, pork femur bones, rib bones and smokey bones.
Some of the illnesses reported by owners and veterinarians include gastrointestinal obstruction, choking, vomiting, diarrhea, cuts and wounds in the mouth, bleeding from the rectum, and/or death.
The FDA says owners should avoid giving their pets chicken bones or other bones from the table and be careful of what they put in the trash can, as dogs are notorious for helping themselves to the turkey or steak bones put in there.
