February is Your Pet’s Dental Health Month
It’s that time of year again. Valentine’s Day means love, hugs and kisses to a lot of us, but what about our furry friends? If Fido’s or Kitty’s breath is bad enough to clear a room, maybe it’s time to check their mouth and teeth before they give you a sloppy lick.
Did you know that dental disease is the most common disease in both cats and dogs, affecting about 70% of pets over the age of three. Although most dogs and cats will develop some sort of dental disease, small breed dogs are much more prone than larger breed dogs.
If you pet has bad breath, it may mean there is a problem with their teeth and gums. This can also contribute to more severe medical conditions and if left untreated, your pet may be at risk for periodontal disease and diseases of their internal organs, such as their heart.
What if your pet’s breath is fresh as a daisy? This is a great time to provide early preventive measures. Larchmont Animal Clinic can provide comprehensive annual dental exams (much like your own dentist) and guide you in various home care products and tips to help keep the dental tartar away.
We all love our furry friends and want to keep out pets healthy from toe to tooth. The best way to keep your pet in tiptop shape is to schedule your pet’s yearly exam with us. Larchmont Animal Clinic is committed to your pet’s well-being every step of the way!
