February is Pet Dental Health Month!


While most people are good at caring for their own teeth it's easy to forget about Fido's. Cats and dogs shouldn't really need tooth brushing, right? Wrong. February is national pet dental health month; the American Veterinary Medical Association's annual effort to remind pet owners to care for their pet's teeth. 

Periodontal infections have been linked to several major disorders such as diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, and kidney disease. It is leo the most common health problem veterinarians find in pets. By the age of two, an estimated 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats already have some form of periodontal disease.

There are many good chews and products that help keep teeth clean, but it's still best to brush pet's teeth every day. The pets should also have regular cleanings by a veterinarian.
