February is National Pet Dental Health Month

Maintaining your pet’s oral health is just as important as maintaining your own. Preventative care such as yearly dental checkups, at home dental care, and regular dental cleanings can all have a positive impact on your pet’s overall health.
Annual oral exams will help detect early signs of dental disease. If left untreated, it can progress into chronic pain, decreased appetite, tooth loss, and even organ damage.
Brushing your pet’s teeth and offering dental chews or treats daily are both great ways to practice prevention at home. Did you know Hill’s makes a specific food geared towards dental health? Ask us about it at your next visit!
Even when practicing good oral hygiene at home, anesthetic dental cleanings provided by your veterinarian and veterinary nursing team are an essential part of your pet’s overall health. Dental procedures allow for a thorough examination of the mouth above and below the gumline and keep your furry friends feeling (and smelling) their best!
