With Halloween just around the corner, and the holiday season fast approaching, we thought it would be a good idea to talk about how to keep your pet's teeth in tip-top shape.
Here are 3 dental tips to keep your dog or cat healthy.
Dental Tip #1
Get your pet's professional dental cleaning (prophylaxis) done yearly.
Feed your dog normal dry food. When your dog eats the dry food, the scraping motion against the teeth cleans them as well. Feed your cat mostly wet food, but remember to consult with your veterinarian if you have questions or concerns about your cat's weight.
Dental Tip #3
We strongly recommend at home dental care daily or at least 4-5 times weekly starting as puppies/kittens, but it's NEVER too late to start. We offer many options for home dental care including chews, oral rinse, and tooth brushing materials that are entirely safe for pets and proven to slow to progression of dental disease.
