February is Pet Dental Health Month! Keeping your pup’s teeth healthy is essential to maintaining their overall wellness. It is just as important to care for your pet’s teeth as it is your own teeth. I mean, you wouldn’t go days without brushing your teeth, would you?
Luckily, your local pet store offers a wide variety of dental hygiene solutions to keep your dog’s teeth looking clean and breath smelling fresh. You can choose from dental treats, dental sprays, dental wipes, and good old toothbrushes with flavored toothpastes or dental rinses.
While canine dental hygiene is often overlooked, keeping your dog’s teeth healthy is something that you should be focusing on all year long. Believe it or not, oral health is the leading health problem for dogs and can stem as early as age three.
A dental routine also enables you to monitor your pup’s health. Yellow teeth and bad breath can be a sign of a more serious disease, like gum disease, which can create serious health issues for your dog, affecting their kidneys, liver and heart. As alarming as that sounds, it is easily preventable! Remember, you can always visit your local vet to check your dog’s teeth and get advice on caring for their oral health.
Your pup deserves pearly whites! If we can make it a routine to brush our own teeth, then we can make it a routine to care for our pet’s teeth. After all, we all know that our furry children are an important part of our family.
