Doggy Dental Care: Keep up with K9 Hygiene

The month of February brings many exciting things–the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, and for our pups we can’t forget, Pet Dental Health Month! While doggy dental care may not be the most exciting event on the calendar, it is the most important. Pups have teeth, and their teeth need looking after just like our own. Need to brush up on the dos and don’ts of pet dental care? We’ve got the scoop right here.

Dental hygiene is a very important part of your pup’s overall health and can be a key indicator to other health issues going on. The American Veterinary Medical Association suggests pets’ gums and teeth should be checked by their Veterinarian annually, in addition to regular brushing at home, though there are signs that indicate you should seek medical attention sooner.

Have your pet’s teeth checked if you observe any of the following problems:

  • Bad breath (“Doggie Breath”)
  • Broken or loose teeth
  • Extra teeth, retained baby teeth, or discolored teeth
  • Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
  • Reduced appetite or refusal to eat
  • Bleeding, swelling, or pain around the mouth
  • Changes in your pet’s behavior
