February is Pet Dental month!
Dental health is an important aspect of overall pet wellness that is often overlooked by pet owners. Just like in humans, regular dental checkups and cleanings can help prevent serious health issues and keep your pet feeling their best.
Poor dental hygiene in pets can lead to a variety of health concerns including:
- Tartar buildup
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Tooth loss
These problems not only cause bad breath, but they can also lead to more serious health issues such as heart, liver, and kidney disease. Studies have shown that the bacteria present in infected gums can travel through the bloodstream and cause inflammation in these organs, leading to chronic health conditions.
Regular dental checkups and cleanings are crucial to detect and prevent these issues. Your veterinarian will be able to perform a thorough oral exam, check for any signs of dental disease, and clean your pet’s teeth as needed. In addition to regular checkups, there are also several steps that pet owners can take to keep their pet’s teeth healthy at home, such as providing them with dental toys and chews, brushing their teeth regularly, and feeding them a diet that is designed to promote dental health.
