February is Pet Dental Health Month

Posted on by

Did you know that February is National Pet Dental Health Month? Dental disease is the most common clinical condition affecting dogs and cats and it is completely preventable.

Your pets bad breath could indicate significant health risks to your dog or cat. Periodontal disease can affect not only your pets teeth but their internal organs, such as their heart and kidneys, as well. Neglecting your pets teeth can cause pain and a decreased quality of life.

There are several ways to help keep your dog or cats teeth healthy.

  • The best way is to brush their teeth with a pet toothpaste at least every other day.
  • If your pet will not tolerate brushing, consider dental toys, treats or a dental diet.
  • Check for the Seal of Acceptance from the Veterinary Oral Health Council to make sure the products you choose are safe and proven effective.

One of our veterinarians will be able to determine whether your pet would benefit a full dental cleaning under anesthesia. The benefits of a dentistry far outweigh any risk of anesthesia.

Call our office today at 716-634-8736, to schedule your pets dental cleaning.

During February, we will be offering a 10% discount on all dental cleanings, dental care toys, treats and products!
