Pet Dental Awareness Month

Pet Dental Awareness Month

Good Dental Hygiene Isn’t Just for Humans

Dental disease is one of the most prevalent health problems among dogs and cats in America. In fact, the American Veterinary Dental Society estimates that four out of five pets over the age of three suffer from some type of oral affliction, like periodontal disease. If left untreated, dental disease can even cause a host of other serious health issues and lead to organ failure. Since our pets cannot tell us when something is wrong with their health, it is important for you to know the warning signs. Some of the major signs and symptoms that could point to dental disease include:

  • Bad breath – Bad breath is not normal and generally indicates the presence of infection.
  • Gum inflammation – Gum inflammation is oftentimes the earliest sign of periodontal disease in pets.
  • Loose teeth – Loose teeth in adult dogs and cats could point to trauma or severe oral infection.
  • Cysts under the tongue – Cysts occurring under the tongue are often due to infection, trauma or a foreign object lodged in the tongue’s soft tissue.

Taking Care of Your Pet’s Dental Needs

Proactive dental care, including regular teeth brushing and providing dental-friendly treats, along with routine professional cleanings help prevent tarter buildup that leads to gingivitis and oral infection. If left untreated, bacteria under the pet’s gum line can make their way into the bloodstream and damage internal organs, like the liver, heart, lungs and kidneys, shortening the  pet’s lifespan by up to 25%. Routine dental care is a simple, effective way to keep your pet happy and healthy! In honor of Pet Dental Awareness Month, we are offering everyone the chance to save $30 on a pet dental procedure.
