Attention Animal Lovers: Your Pet’s Teeth Also Matters

Pets need dental attention too! While your general dentist is probably not qualified to take a peek in your dog’s mouth, that doesn’t mean that you should let your pet skip regular dental visits.

Next time your pet goes to the vet, make sure that they check their teeth. Your pet can suffer from bleeding or swollen gums and plaque buildup if they do not receive a regular brushing.

Picking up a doggy toothbrush and doggy toothpaste can also help your pup stay healthy. Brushing their teeth will help clear away plaque and tartar, saving your pet from oral pain. You can also add a water additive to their bowl which can help break down plaque and reduce further plaque formation.

Next time you are at a pet store, look for tools that will help you keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy.
