Special Pricing on Dental Care for Your Pug!


Does your Pug have bad breath? Does he or she have trouble eating, or spend time pawing at their mouth? The problem might be an infected tooth, or maybe a thorough cleaning is in order..

If you have been putting this off, Point Loma Veterinary Center (PLVC) has a very special offer for owners of Pugs that were adopted from Pug Rescue of San Diego.


PLVC has been working with Pug Rescue of San Diego since 2015, performing teeth cleaning procedures for Pugs in our care. They are now offering the following Dental Prophy procedure to adoptive parents of Pug Rescue Pugs.

This includes:

  • Cleaning
  • Polishing
  • Anesthesia
  • Veterinary evaluation of all of the teeth, while the Pug is under anesthesia
  • IV cahtheter and fluids
  • Antibiotic injection and oral Rx

PLVC will provide all of the above, starting at $245.00. (Additional charges may apply for extractions, pain medicine and dental x-rays.)

Most of us have had toothaches, and we know how painful they can be. If your Pug is exhibiting unusual behavior - or if he / she has never had a dental checkup, NOW is the time to take advantage of this very special offer. Remember, this offer is for Pugs that have been adopted from Pug Rescue of San Diego. Price good through May, 2020.

Call Point Loma today to schedule your appointment. They can be reached at: (619) 222-4482. Their address is: 1964 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., San Diego, CA 92107

We are in desperate need of funds to continue this work of ours. Please contribute if you can, no amount is too small. Visit our website at www.pugsandiego.com/index.php Thank you and Happy Holidays.
