Whilst thoroughly inspecting and brushing your pet's teeth is not always the easiest task, it remains one that is imperative to their health and overall wellbeing. Hidden within your pet's mouth can be an extensive range of insights and indications about their health; therefore, it is important to check it regularly and clean thoroughly. As February is Pet Dental Hygiene month, New Pet Parent are on hand to guide you in caring for your pets oral health!
What is Pet Dental Health Month?
Much like humans, pets can suffer from a broad spectrum of oral problems - and the condition of their mouths can significantly impact their overall health and wellbeing. From bad breath to gum disease, dental care for cats and dogs is an equally important part of pet ownership - for this reason, regular inspection and consistent care are encouraged. National Pet Dental Health Month is been created to educate owners on the importance of their pets' Oral Health. Additionally, following are New Pet Parent's health care tips.
New Pet Parent's Dental Hygiene Tips
A Balanced Diet and Dental Chews: Whilst the mouth has its self-cleaning system, its efficiency can be aided by the consumption of a balanced diet and some biscuits/chews designed to assist in oral hygiene.
Brush Their Teeth: A soft toothbrush and paste specially formulated for pets can be used to brush their teeth. You should enquire with a veterinary professional to ensure you are brushing effectively and should never use toothpaste for humans, as these can be considered toxic to animals due to the high fluoride and xylitol content.
Regular Check-ups: Just like us, our pets should have regular veterinary check-ups with their vet to monitor and care for their health - particularly if they are older. If their oral health is currently suffering, they may require a professional veterinary dental treatment - in addition to ongoing plaque control.
