February Is National Pet
More than just a cosmetic issue, yellow teeth and bad breath can be a sign of serious disease in our pets, which may affect their kidneys, livers, and hearts.
Proper dental care can detect dental disease that not only affects the mouth, but can also lead to more serious health problems such as heart, lung, and kidney disease. Good dental hygiene is just as important for pets as it is for humans. (AAHA, “Dental care guidelines”)
Early detection of dental and periodontal disease can significantly improve your pet’s quality of life and longevity. To stress the importance of oral health care for your pet, we observe National Pet Dental Health Month in February by offering a $50.00 discount on your pet’s dental cleaning procedure, and 7% discount on preventative at home dental care products. Of course, dental prevention should be maintained year-round.
Three Simple Steps to Dental Care
Pet owners can brush up on their four-legged friends’ oral care by following three simple guidelines outlined by the American Veterinary Dental Society.
· Get a a dental exam done by your veterinarian. Your pet should have a routine veterinarian examination, including a careful examination of his teeth and gums, at least once a year.
· Start an at-home regimen. Ask your veterinarian to suggest nutritional supplements and a regular teeth brushing schedule or a specially formulated food proven to help remove plaque and tarter from your pet’s teeth.
· Schedule dental cleanings. Take your pet for regular dental checkups.
