Dental Prevention Month

As part of preventative care for your pet, their teeth are a huge part of their health. Check your dog or cat's teeth today. Do you see any plaque or tartar. This can be harmful to your pet's health. Infection or teeth abscess can be a factor. If their teeth or gums are hurting, this can affect their eating which can cause an even bigger problem. Home care for cats and dogs can improve your pet's lives. Of course, always consult your veterinarian on what they recommend for home care. Here are some suggestions:  First, if your pet will allow you to brush their teeth, this can be the most effective. There are many different types of brushes out there like the rubbery finger brush or the smaller version of a regular toothbrush. It is recommended to brush at least several times a week.  Do not use human toothpaste! This can harm the animal. Always use products made for that type of animal. Second, there are products out there like oral mouth washes or gels. Some of these mouth washes can be mixed in their water or food. Some animals are ok with these and some are not, so try it out first. Third, there are dental-based treats and diets to help prevent plaque. Hills and Royal Canin make great diets and treats to help. Fourth, there are some chew toys that will help just make sure they are made for you type of pet and will not break apart. Please go to our Library tab for more information.
