It’s almost February and that means National Pet Dental Month!!

But… is my pet’s dental health really a big deal?
Short answer: YES! A good dental care routine is just as important to your pet as it is to you. Can you image not brushing your teeth every day and never going to a dentist? YUCK! In fact, the dental care of your furry friend is one of the most commonly neglected aspects of a pet’s overall health.
Don’t take our word for it! A recent American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) study revealed that nearly two-thirds of American pet owners don’t bring their pet in for annual dental exams.
Whoa! That’s more than 100 million pets!
But the bad news doesn’t stop there. Nearly 70%-80% of all dogs and cats show some signs of periodontal disease by age 3!
Poor dental health can contribute to many serious medical problems; not just orally, but affecting the overall health of your pet. Dental disease is the number one illness affecting pets, and can impair heart, kidney, and even lung functions!
Don’t wait for a loose tooth or horrible breath to act. Schedule a free dental exam with one of our skilled technicians now and take the first step to getting your pet’s mouth feeling happy, healthy, and clean!
