February Is National Pet Dental Month
February is national pet dental month so we thought we would list a few reasons why dental care for your dog is so important:
1. Healthy teeth and gums equals a dog with better breath!
2. Dental disease can cause health problems and affect organs such as the heart.
3. Baby teeth that don’t fall out can cause gum irritation and tarter build-up.
4. According to the Pet Health Network, 4 out of 5 dogs over the age of 3 years have periodontal disease that can be caused by the buildup of plaque.
So, in honor of National Pet Dental Month make an appointment with your vet to ensure your dog’s teeth and gums are healthy!
