Does Your Dog Have Bad Breath? February is National Pet Dental Health Month

February is National Pet Dental Health Month. Dental health is a huge part of your pet’s overall health. Dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems, which is why annual dental exams are so important for your pet.

80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some form of periodontal disease by the age of 3, and this will only worsen if effective preventive measures aren’t taken. Most pet dental disease occurs below the gums, where you can’t see it.

Routine dental cleanings help prevent periodontal disease and allow a complete oral exam that can detect hidden health problems. Your pet’s teeth and gums should be checked at least once a year by your veterinarian. Left untreated, dental disease isn’t just bad for your pet’s teeth; it can actually damage internal organs, including the heart, liver and kidneys. That’s why regular dental exams are so important.

Brushing your pet’s teeth is the single most effective means to maintain dental health between professional dental cleanings. Learn more about how to brush your pet’s teeth with this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB3GIAgrTPE
