Did you know that the month of February is National Pet Dental Health Month?
Veterinarian’s often talk about the importance of brushing your dog’s teeth – daily – but how many of you really are brushing your pup’s teeth? Dental health in dogs and cats is very important. Smaller dogs often have the worse dental disease due to the mere fact that their mouths are smaller, and teeth are closer together. But all dogs can suffer from periodontal disease as well as cats.
If you have a new puppy or kitten, the best time to start is while they are still young, getting them used to brushing their teeth. There are specially made pet toothbrushes and pet toothpaste, (do NOT ever use human toothpaste on a dog, it can be very dangerous to the dog), that you can purchase in any pet store. If you are not sure how to brush your dog’s teeth, consult your veterinarian on the proper tools and technique – this way you will not hurt your dog.
