Gear up for Pet Dental Month

Gearing up for Pet Dental Month

February is National Pet Dental Month, sponsored by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

To address the significance of oral health care for pets, several veterinary groups sponsor National Pet Dental Health Month in February. Most dental care is expensive and should be planned for this month as most veterinary offices may offer discounts during the month of February.

Bad breath is the most common sign of gum disease, which is usually caused by bacteria growing inside the mouth when the plaque turns to tartar. If this goes untreated for too long this buildup of plaque and tartar results in inflammation of the gums. Don’t turn your nose up at bad breath! This odor is a warning to check with your doctor.

A regular tooth brushing is a great way to help prevent gum disease and periodontal disease from infecting your pet’s health. The use of hard food and many different types of chewies are just a few ways to help prevent this from becoming a sore to your finances and your pet’s normally healthy life.
