She has also spent some time traveling to other parts of the United States and the world through veterinary medicine. She has a love of teaching and molding the next generation. She has developed an externship program for veterinary students to experience a rural veterinary clinic.

**Dental Discount Month**

 

February is National Pet Dental Health Month!

In celebration of National Pet Dental Health Month, Cheyenne River Animal Hospital is offering *free dental exams* and a 15% discount on dental cleaning during the month of February.

Did you know that 80% of dogs and 70% cats show signs of dental disease by the age of 3? “Dog breath” is not a laughing matter – for dogs or cats. In fact, bad breath is one of the earliest indicators of dental disease! Other signs include red, bleeding, irritated gums; tartar accumulation; changes in chewing or eating habits; tooth loss; and even behavioral changes, like irritability and depression. Unfortunately, untreated dental disease has been shown to contribute to liver, kidney, and heart disease, and is estimated to reduce life expectance by 20%!

 

Top 3 benefits of dental care for your pet: 

1)      Longer, happier, and healthier lives! 

2)      Treatment and prevention of painful gingivitis, infection, and tooth loss.

3)      Fresh breath! (Which means fresh dog and cat kisses!)
