National Pet Dental Health Month
February is National Pet Dental Health Month. More than just a cosmetic issue, yellow teeth and bad breath can be a sign of serious disease in pets. This condition can result in nutritional problems and eventually cause damage to organs such as kidneys, liver and heart. Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets, with most dogs and cats becoming affected by age three. Keeping your pet’s teeth and mouth healthy not only helps prevent disease but also helps to prevent emergency visits to the vet. The American Veterinary Medical Association has some great information about how to help keep your pets healthy, including their teeth. Visit www.avma.org and search pet oral health.
