ABOUT 80% OF ADULT ANIMALS HAVE SOME DEGREE OF DENTAL DISEASE.
Good oral care for your pet is essential for a healthy and happy life.
Healthy teeth and gums are a key component of your pet’s overall health and wellbeing and in preventing the development of serious health conditions such as infection sin the kidney, heart and liver.
A thorough dental check-up at least once every 12 months for your dog or cat may highlight the need for cleaning, polishing, tooth extraction, or even just a simple change in diet to get their health back on track. Book in for your free pet dental check this month.
3 STEPS TO PET DENTAL HEALTH
Follow these simple steps to keep your pet smiling.
Always choose hard food and treats for your pet designed to promote good dental health.
These are formulated to ensure your pet chews the pieces and contain fibres that scrape the plaque off the teeth. Feed your dog a raw bone with attached meat at least once weekly.
Regular tooth brushing is recommended.
Many cats and dogs can be trained to enjoy having their teeth brushed, especially if you start at an early age.
Use a toothpaste made especially for pets at least twice weekly. Special brushes are also available to make the task easier.
Alternatively, dental chews like Oravet given daily are a great way to clean their teeth.
Thorough dental check-ups for your pet will highlight any issues before they go on to cause significant health problems down the track.
