Dental Month
Did you know that February is National Pet Dental Month? The majority of people consider brushing their teeth part of a healthy daily routine. But most donít give nearly the same attention when it comes to the dental health of their pets.

To educate owners of pet dental hygiene, February has been chosen as National Pet Dental Month by American Veterinary Medical Society. Dental care is often ignored by owners due to the cost of periodontal therapy. Food and plaque can build up on your petís teeth, much like your own. If it lingers there, it can cause bad breath, gingivitis, receding gums, loss of teeth, damage to the tongue and palate, and oral infections. Some of these problems can make it hard for your pet to chew and eat, and they can cause more complications down the road.

It is a fact that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3. Periodontal disease is a common problem in dogs. Cats can develop painful resorptive lesions. To help avoid these issues, bring your pet to the veterinarian at least once a year for a dental exam. The veterinarian will examine your petís mouth, and perform a professional cleaning. Then follow it by maintaining your petís dental health by giving them dental treats, chews, and brushing their teeth. Yes, you heard us right, brushing your petís teeth.
