February is National Pet Dental Health Month
Do you care for your dog’s teeth as you would your own?
You may feed them the best pet food their is, but did you know that the most common health problem in dogs is actually periodontal disease? In fact, dogs often have symptoms of oral disease by the time they are three!
Gum and teeth issues can become painful if not treated, and lead to serious problems. Max recommends:
- brushing often, start young if you can, to get your pup used to it. Some do well with a finger tooth brush that just slips onto the tip of your finger such as used on a baby
- chewing dental sticks and bones designed for dogs teeth health
- quality dog food
- yearly check dental check ups with your veterinarian
