I’m a little behind the eight ball on this post as it should of really been done the first of the month so you all knew that February was National Pet Dental Health Month, but from all the blog posts going around I think you all know it by now. The other bloggers have been doing a excellent job getting the word out on how important taking care of your pet’s teeth is. You should do it all year long to keep your pets teeth healthy.
I really should do more when it comes to my pet’s teeth (especially Gambler, when he was young I spent $1000.00 correcting his teeth after Norman bit him. More on that later) . I brush them on occasion, use a product from the vet called Oravet on occasion and give them lots of bones to chew on. My gang must be blessed with good teeth genetics. Noman had a very light cleaning when I neutered him at 10 years old. Nellie had a very light cleaning at 7 years when I spayed her, Gambler and Glory haven’t needed a dental yet at 4 & 3 years.
In our examination rooms at work we have this poster hanging on the door.
We also have a handout that we can check mark the appropriate box that describes the clients pet’s teeth and give to them to take home.
We have several products that we sell at the clinic to keep the pets teeth healthy.
Bigger impregnated food to make the dog or cat chew the food so the scrubbing action takes off the plaque.
Chewies are impregnated with Chlorahexidine to help kill the bacteria in the mouth while they are chewing on the chew.
VeggieDent treats are a non rawhide treat made of veggies.
It’s always best to brush your pet’s teeth daily. If can’t brush daily then you should use OraVet once a week. OraVet is a gel that you rub near the gumline and it covers the tooth and gets under the gum to kill bacteria that is on the teeth which causes the plaque which turns into tartar if not taken care of.
Here is a video of Gman getting his teeth brushed with a electric toothbrush.
Gman loves to get his teeth brushed.
So what are you waiting for, pick up that brush and get started on keeping those teeth healthy.
