Pet Dental Care Tips

Pet Dental Care

February is National Pet Dental Care month. Chew on this…did you know that 8 out of every 10 pets over the age of three suffers from gum (periodontal) disease?  Proper prevention and dental treatment are necessary. Without proper preventative steps, your pets can suffer from tooth decay, bleeding gums, tooth loss, and even internal organ damage. Pet dental care is an important part of pet ownership.

February is National Pet Care Dental Month.  Take the time to know the signs of oral disease in pets:

  • Bad breath.  Your pet’s breath will not smell great, but persistent bad breath is a sign that your pet needs a dental visit.
  • Red, bleeding, swollen, or receding gums
  • Yellow-brown plaque or tartar on your pet’s teeth
  • Loose, infected for missing teeth

What can you do to prevent oral disease?

  • Schedule annual wellness visits to your veterinarian, including dental visits and cleaning.
  • If you groom your pet monthly, see if your groomer offers teeth cleanings!  Many of them offer this service.
  • Brush your pet’s teeth regularly!  Pick up pet toothbrushes and toothpaste at your local pet store.
  • Feed pet food that is specifically designed and formatted to for tartar control and plaque buildup.
    • Choose kibble over wet pet food.  Kibble is better for their teeth
    • Avoid table scraps and human food.  Often these foods get stuck in your pet’s teeth and gums

Keep your pet healthy from tail to tooth!  Get your pet on a regular dental care schedule starting this month!
