February is National Pet Dental Health Month, and the perfect time to get in the habit of brushing your pet’s teeth (if you don’t already), and scheduling a dental appointment with your veterinarian.
Just like your own dental health, your pet’s dental health is important too. Tooth decay and gum disease can cause your dog or cat discomfort and other serious health problems if an infection in the mouth spreads.
The American Veterinary Medical Association has a webpage devoted to Pet Dental Health Month, with lots of useful resources for pet parents.
To get you started, they have posted this pet tooth brushing how-to video on YouTube. Happy brushing!
