National Pet Dental Health Month
February is National Pet Dental Health Month! Did you know that dental disease can lead to problems with your pet’s organs, such as the heart? Dental disease and tooth loss can also be very painful for our pets, just the same as it is for us. However, it is in our pets’ nature to hide that discomfort they may be feeling. We might not see the signs of dental issues until their eating is affected, mouth odor changes or a behavioral change (loss of interest in favorite toys or chews). Our pets need regular at home dental care, and regular checkups here with your favorite veterinarian. Good at home care includes brushing, water additives, dental diets and enzymatic chews. Our team recommends the C.E.T. brand of toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental chews, OxyFresh “fresh breath” oral water additive, and Hills Oral Care or T/D diet. We carry a variety of products here at the clinic and on our accredited online store. In honor of National Pet Dental Month our online store has a coupon 15CLEAN to save 15 % off your total purchase online. Just use that code at check out, (good through 2-14-2022). Please let us know if you have any questions regarding your pet’s dental needs or to have a dental checkup scheduled with one of our veterinarians.
