Febuary Tip

Febuary is Dental Month!

Dental disease is the most common medical problem found in dogs and cats according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. They estimates that by age three, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of gum disease that can manifests as bad breath, tooth loss and infections that can spread and potentially about two percent of pet owners ever brush their pets teeth.

Do you know there are more dental products than just brushing your pets teeth?  Try giving your pet a chew toy or bone on a daily basis to help prevent plaque and gum disease.  We even have sprays for bad breath and plaque remover. 

How would you feel if your teeth started hurting and starting falling out because you didn't go to the dentist on a regular basis?  Pets are the same way.  Your pets don't have a voice to tell you they need dental work. 

One way to know if they have plaque on their teeth is by looking at them.  It is a brown coat that covers their teeth.  It's hard and you can chip it away with the right dental tools.  My advise is let the professionals handle the major dental care. 

One way to know your pet has an infection is by the way their breath smells.  If it smells like they have an infection (kinda a strong yeast smell) they probably do.  Please take them to a vet ASAP!  They might need to pull a few teeth and give them antibiotics.  To prevent teeth loss, start giving your pet regualr dental care.  The earlier you start a dental routine with them, the easier it is on you and your pet.
