February is Pet Dental Month

PetDentalHealth    February Is National Pet Dental Health Month. … According to the American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS), 80% of dogs and 70% of cats will develop some form of oral disease by the age of three. Not addressing your pet’s dental health could lead to more severe secondary diseases like heart or kidney disease.

February is almost over, so check your furry family members teeth and make sure they do not have medium to dark coloring on any of their teeth.  If so, please schedule a follow-up appointment with your vet’s clinic.

The Diabetic Dog Bakery suggests that you give your furry family member snacks/treats that build strong teeth, instead of harming their teeth with foods that stick to the teeth surfaces.  Some snacks/treats to use are human-grade and limited ingredients in each treat bag.

Cucumbers are perfectly safe for dogs to eat, and offer a low-calorie, crunchy snack that many dogs love. Cucumbers only contain about 8 calories per one-half cup of slices, compared to the 40 calories in a single medium Milk Bone biscuit, and are very low in sodium and fat. More information here.

Once the plaque is under control, you can maintain your dog’s teeth by brushing them with coconut oil, using a soft baby toothbrush

Adding roughly half a teaspoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar to your dog’s water bowl can help freshen up breath
