February is Pet Dental Month!

About the event

Dog dental health is no laughing matter.  Ignoring the smell can really have serious consequences.  Bad breath is often one of the first signs of dental disease. 

It is estimated that by the age of two, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some form of periodontal disease which has been linked to diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease and other life-threatening disorders.

Dental disease can include swollen, bleeding gums, broken or infected teeth, or even cancer. But you can take steps to control plaque on your pet’s teeth by seeing a veterinarian for a dental checkup.

To keep your pet’s breath smelling clean and more importantly, to maintain their overall health and quality of life, talk to your vet, schedule a dental cleaning, and promise to show your love for your pet every day with proper oral care.

5 Tips to Keep Your Dog’s Teeth Healthy Every Day

  • Develop proper at-home dental treatment, such as brushing and teeth-friendly chewable items.
  • Regularly examine your pet’s teeth and gums, noting any changes in color, redness, or sensitivity.
  • Have you noticed a sudden change in your pet’s breath? Foul breath can often signal infection, and it’s important to schedule a veterinarian appointment soon to explore the source.
  • Observe your pet’s behavior during meal time to see if he or she is show signs of pain while chewing.
  • Plan regular visits to the veterinarian for dental cleaning.
