NATIONAL PET DENTAL HEALTH MONTH
- The truth is that we should be concerned about our pet's teeth year round. Is Fluffy's breath starting to smell? Is Max turning up his nose at the crunchy kibble? These may be warning signs of advancing dental disease.
- Have you been brushing your pet's teeth and providing dental treats or toys since your pet was a pup or kitten? Studies show that about 80% of pets already have periodontal (gum) disease by the time they are 3 years old! It is more likely to occur when home dental care is not provided on a routine basis. Periodontal disease may be a painful condition and lead to tooth loss and other systemic health problems such as respiratory, cardiac, kidney and liver disease
- At Day Hollow Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing our patients with preventive dental health care because we know their loving owners want them to be around for many years to come. We offer instruction on caring for teeth at home, a variety of home dental care products, as well as in-clinic dental prophylaxis cleaning.
