National Pet Dental Health Month

That stinky dog breath isn't just annoying for you, it's a potentially serious health problem for your pooch as well.  Unfortunately, by age 3 most dogs have evidence of periodental disease, but by the time they get veterinary dental treatment, it's often too late to prevent extensive disease.  As a result of being under-treated, periodontal disease can also be associated with damage to internal organs as your pet ages.

Since February is National Pet Dental Health Month why not start your pet on a dental hygiene routine, starting with a good cleaning and checkup from your vet.  Some clinics even offer discounts during the month of February. The following is a super simple step by step informational video on starting your pet on a brushing routine.  (He's not the best on camera, but the info is great! I also know there are a ton of vets that disagree with giving the rawhide treats because they've had to be surgically removed, but otherwise it's great information) The more often you do it, the easier it will get!  Don't be discouraged!  Give it a try!
