If your cat or dog has bad breath or discolored buildup on its teeth, then it is may be time to have a professional dental cleaning by a licensed veterinarian. February is National Pet Dental Health Month and veterinarians offer a discount on teeth cleanings all month. We encourage you to take advantage of this, since oral disease can damage teeth and gums, and has the potential to damage internal organs.
Oral health issues of the gums and teeth are common in both dogs and cats - by age 3, more than 75% have some form of tartar buildup on teeth, especially if they are not receiving regular teeth cleanings at home. Just like people, regular oral care can prevent oral disease from manifesting into serious, life threatening health problems.
Once tartar is removed, at home care can prevent future troubles. Petsmile meets the Veterinary Oral Health Council effectiveness standards for inhibiting plaque growth on teeth. The fast & easy formula doesn't even require a toothbrush - just dab a pearl size drop of Petsmile on your fingertip & swipe across you pet's teeth 2 to 3 times weekly. Cats and dogs LOVE the natural London Beef Broil taste so they think they're getting a special treat!
Our pet's oral health care is one thing we can do to increase the years of love we get to share with our furbabies!Wishing everyone a beautiful, healthy February! 💖
