February is Dental Health Month!

Dental health is a very important, often overlooked part of your pet’s health and well-being. It is important to get your pet’s dental health evaluated by your veterinarian at least once a year. It should be sooner if you notice any warning signs.

Signs that signal something may be going on in your pet’s mouth include:

  • Bad breath
  • Broken or loose teeth
  • Retained baby teeth
  • Teeth that are discolored
  • Abnormal chewing or excessive drooling
  • Reduced appetite
  • Pain
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling

At-home prevention can play a key role in maintaining dental health for your pet! Regularly brushing your pets teeth is the single most effective thing to do between dental cleanings. Although daily is best, it is recommended to get at least three brushings done in a week. This may reduce the frequency that your pet requires dental cleanings. Patience and training play a key role in a successful brushing routine for you and your pet. Be sure to make an appointment to discuss any concerns you have with your pet’s dental health, as well as any changes you would like to make in your pet’s dental routine. We are pleased to offer 15% off on select dental products until the end of February!
