Just as we humans require good dental hygiene, so do our most loyal companions! It’s true; up to 80% of our patients over the age of three suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue to date.
Fortunately for you, though, there are a variety of ways to improve your pet’s overall oral health, including:
- Tooth Brushing – Ideally once per day!
- Dental Chews – Look for the products with the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) seal of approval.
- Hill’s Prescription Diet t/d
Of course, the most effective way to protect your pet’s mouth from disease and combat stinky breath is by scheduling a professional comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment aka COHAT. Our surgical veterinarians will take the time to thoroughly inspect your pet’s mouth, take full oral x-rays, scale away any tartar and debris, and finish with a nice polish to get their teeth squeaky clean!
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, please do not hesitate to give us a call at (802)862-2472.
