Pet Dental Health

February 12, 2019

SMILE!!

February is Pet Dental Health Month! Do you have a strict daily oral care routine for your pet?

Did you know 80% of all dogs and 70% of all cats show signs of dental disease? Without treatment this can lead to heart, lung, and kidney disease.

In 2018 alone West Greenwich Animal Hospital performed 157 dental procedures on our furry friends.

Daily brushing remains the single most effective way to decrease further plaque and tartar build up on your pet’s teeth. Brushing teeth, however, will not effectively remove and repair any dental disease that is already present, this will require a surgical dental procedure.

Some signs and symptoms of dental disease include:

If your pet presents any of these symptoms, you may want to call our office and set up a pre-dental consult.

To learn how to brush your pet’s teeth stop by our office and pick up a FREE pet dental starter kit and/or click on this link to our YouTube video where Dr. Ralph and his dog Lucy show you how to properly brush your pet’s teeth!
