February is Dental Health Month!

We are already almost through the first month of the new year, and with February creeping closer and closer it’s a good time to take a look at your pet’s teeth! Most of us have annual visits to the dentist, so why not get your pet in to clean those pearly whites up? Some pets can have serious health risks if unchecked problems in the mouth are left for too long. Keep an eye out for these signs:
-bad breath
-broken or loose teeth
-extra or retained baby teeth
-teeth that are discolored or cover in tartar
-abnormal chewing, drooling, or food falling out of the mouth
-reduced eating or refusal to eat
-pain in or around the mouth
-bleeding originating from the mouth
-swelling in areas around the mouth
If you notice any of these signs, call and make an appointment to get your furry friend in for a quick checkup to evaluate their overall health and decide if dental work is a good choice for them. We know how much your pets mean to you and are always here to answer any questions or concerns you may have. And remember, a healthy pet is a happy pet!
