Dental Care Tips for Your Pet

Friday, January 30th, 2015

DogWithToothbrushChew 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 is necessary, without it your pets can suffer from tooth decay, bleeding gums, tooth loss, and even internal organ damage.

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

  • Bad breath.  Your pets 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 pets 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 pets teeth regularly!  Pick up pet tooth brushes and tooth paste 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 pets teeth and gums

Keeping your pet healthy includes their teeth!  Start you pet dental plan this month!
