Pet Dental Health Month



February is marked as National Pet Dental Health Month to emphasize the importance of dental health for our pets. Although we strive to keep our furry friends as healthy as possible, just like any other family member, we often overlook important aspects of their pet's dental care.

Pet’s Dental Care is extremely important

Dental Care for Dogs and Cats

The best way to manage dental disease in pets is through prevention. To keep your floof’s gums healthy, you should brush their teeth frequently with a good toothpaste like Pet Dent Toothpaste and remove the plaque daily. If your pet is hesitant about brushing, you can try brushing their teeth with a Pet Dent Toothbrush or Finger Brush for easier and more convenient brushing.

Also, try to maintain fresh breath between the brushings. There are dental solutions like Orovet Oral Rinse and many others that help freshen breath and maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Dental chews and chew toys are also a terrific way of maintaining your dog’s dental hygiene. Although they are not a replacement for brushing your dog's teeth, they are a quick, fun, and tasty approach to help your dog's oral health on a frequent basis. Your dog will enjoy this tasty treat and the chewing experience, and you'll feel good knowing you're aiding your dog's oral health.

Professional veterinary dental cleanings also play an important role in this. Regular vet visits, at least once every six months, for dental cleaning will help detect periodontal diseases at an early stage. If detected early, these diseases can be treated and reversed.

While maintaining your pet’s dental health, the best defense is a good offense. Fortunately, with a few simple points in mind, you can successfully keep your dog’s teeth healthy.

This dental health month, walk the extra mile to support your pet’s dental hygiene. Take them to a vet, buy them some dental stuff and brush up on the key points of keeping their smiles sparkling!
