Most of use love nothing more than kisses and cuddling up with our furry friends. Sometimes that means smelling some seriously bad breath – of course with Greenies, CET chews, NylaBone dental chews, doggy toothbrushes/toothpaste, water dental additives and the myriad of other products out there…we as pet owners think we’re doing pretty good! Sometimes our furkids need a good dental cleaning just like their humans! According the AMVA February 1 marks the beginning of National Pet Dental Health Month. More than just a cosmetic issue, bad breath and yellow teeth can be a sign of serious disease in our pets, which may affect their kidneys, livers, and hearts. Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets, and 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats by age 3, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. In this podcast, Dr. Linda DeBowes, veterinarian at Shoreline Veterinary Dental Clinic in Seattle, talks about the importance of dental health for our pets.
