Pet Dental Health Month: How to Keep Your Pet’s Teeth Healthy

20220223-090247Pet-Dental-Health-Month-How-to-Keep-Your-Pets-Teeth-Healthy

This month is Pet Dental Health Month, so it is a great time to think about taking better care of your furry friend’s teeth and gums. Much like people, dogs and cats need dental care. Unfortunately, many go their entire lives without it. Without at-home cleanings and veterinary exams, most pets experience periodontal disease within the first few years of their lives. 

Here at Orting Animal Hospital, we provide pet dental care in Orting and are here to help your care for your beloved companion’s teeth. Keep reading to learn more about how you can keep your dog or cat’s teeth healthy. 

Brush Their Teeth Daily

Daily teeth brushings aren’t just for people. Pets need them, too! While it’s easiest to get your pet used to having their teeth brushed when they are young, even older animals can learn to tolerate it. If you need help finding the right toothbrush or toothpaste or don’t know how to brush your pet’s teeth, we can help. 

Buy Dental Toys and Treats

They aren’t a substitute for brushings and professional dental care, but dental toys and treats can help keep your pet’s mouth cleaner. The next time you are shopping for something special for your four-legged friend, look for a toy or treat that provides oral health benefits

Schedule an Appointment for Pet Dental Care in Orting

Brushing your pet’s teeth at home is important, but you should still schedule annual cleanings and exams with their veterinarian. When you choose us for pet dental care in Orting, we’ll thoroughly examine your pet’s mouth, take x-rays, and clean the teeth above and below the gum line. We’ll also address potential problems. If your furry friend is due for dental services, let us help. Call now to schedule an appointment.
