The Importance of Pet Dental Hygiene

 

Pet Hygiene

 

It doesn’t seem like a year has passed but with National Pet Dental Health Month here again, we are reminded of how time flies!

Have you intended to make it to the veterinarian but haven’t had a chance? Take this blog post as a friendly reminder to get your furry friend’s dental check up done sooner, rather than later. Just as humans can suffer from the lack of dental hygiene, so can your dog or cat. Poor dental health can lead to severe health issues for humans and the same can happen for your best friend.

Do not mistake bad breath as just “dog breath” as this may be your first sign of dental issues or disease. Most dogs and cats do not get cavities but they do develop plaque and tartar buildup. This buildup can lead to gingivitis, tooth decay, loss of teeth, bleeding gums, or any other type of dental disease.

Only 1 out of every 10 dog or cat owners actually take their pets in for a dental exam; so book a dental appointment today to ensure your furry loved one’s health. Lastly, at Regal Pet Resort, we suggest getting your pet’s teeth brushed when your animal is here for a bath or groom.

P.S. We started this blog a year ago and hope all of you are enjoying and benefiting from it. Let us know what you think in the comments!
