Celebrating National Pet Dental Health Month

February is National Pet Dental Health Month, and we think it’s a perfect opportunity to highlight the importance of your furry friend’s oral hygiene. Good dental care is crucial for pets, just like it is for humans! Let’s explore some tips for keeping your pet’s teeth and gums in great condition–not just this month, but all year long.

Understanding Pet Dental Health

Dental disease is very common in pets. Unfortunately, many pet owners don’t know how to care for their pet’s teeth at home or have difficulty getting their pets to cooperate with regular brushing. Poor oral health can lead to serious health issues. Regular dental check-ups with your veterinarian can prevent these problems. We may also recommend professional dental cleanings to remove plaque buildup. 

Home Dental Care Tips

Brushing your pet’s teeth often with pet-safe toothpaste is the most ideal way to keep their smile healthy. However, we know that this isn’t always feasible, and many pets don’t enjoy having their teeth brushed, especially cats. We recommend training your pets to accept having their teeth brushed with lots of positive reinforcement. With some patience and diligence, it will become just another part of their routine. Try to brush their teeth at least a few times per week.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Your veterinarian can provide professional dental cleanings. These cleanings remove plaque and tartar build-up, which can lead to periodontal disease. This illness can cause pain and sensitivity to your pet’s smile, and, in extreme cases, can lead to tooth loss. Check-ups with your veterinarian can catch these issues before they get worse and prescribe the appropriate treatment plan.

Contact Your Veterinarian to Schedule Your Pet’s Appointment Today

Remember, regular dental care is key to your pet’s overall health. Contact your veterinarian for more guidance and to schedule a dental check-up. Your veterinarian can also give you some easy tips to keep up with your pet’s oral health at home.
