Did you know that February is National Pet Dental Health Month? The American Veterinary Medical Association (AMVA) started this awareness campaign several years ago to alert people about the importance of caring for their pet’s oral health. Although most pet owners take excellent care of their dog or cat, they often overlook toothbrushing and scheduling regular professional cleanings. The result is that 80 percent of companion animals have some form of dental disease by the time they reach age three. The Krause Veterinary Clinic veterinary team encourages you to strongly consider the importance of dental health for your pet.

It’s a common joke among pet owners that they love their dog or cat’s kisses despite the terrible breath that comes with them. Unfortunately, bad breath is one of the first signs that your pet could have periodontal disease. Oral chews can help disguise bad breath, but eliminating it and preventing periodontal disease requires regular dental care.
