Say Ahhh - FEBRUARY is Our Dental Care Awareness Month

Posted in: Dog, Pet, Cat

Not only is stinky breath unpleasant to deal with, periodontal disease can have major impacts on your pets general health and well-being. This is why preventative care is so important- if your pet’s teeth are pearly white- that’s great! But we need to keep them this way. 

Preventative Measures to You Can Take at Home

1. Tooth Brushing

Brushing teeth is an effective way to control tartar build-up and prevent periodontal disease. It is best to introduce a brushing program at a young age. Avoid over-restraining and keep brushing sessions short and positive. There are different types and sizes of toothbrush available for all breeds and age groups to keep your pet as comfortable as possible.

 2. Healthy Mouth

This is a flavoured solution which can be added to your pet’s drinking water. It helps to reduce plaque and eliminate harmful bacteria in the mouth. A natural enzyme called Papain combined with an antibacterial agent Zinc gluconate proves effectiveness against the accumulation of bacteria and leaves your pet with fresh breath. For more info, please visit http://www.healthymouth.com

3. Dental Diet, Treats, and Toys

These are designed specifically to clean your pet’s teeth while they are eating or playing. Using veterinary recommended dental diet along with appropriate dental chews can offer almost the equivalent level of mechanical cleaning as tooth brushing. Visit us in store to see our wide range of products catered towards both cats and dogs.

 

Common Symptoms of Periodontal Disease Needing Vet Attention:

  • Excessive drooling
  • Bad breath
  • Painful when eating
  • Inflammation of gum
  • Bleeding in the mouth
  • Eating less than usual (especially dry food)


In some cases, a chronic periodontal disease may lead to serious heart & kidney problems or can acerbate already existing conditions. We strongly recommend regular dental check-ups to keep our furry little friends happy and healthy.


Professional Dental Services Available at Pet and Vet

A basic veterinary dental procedure consists of de-scale and polishing just like us at the dentist. During cleaning, the vet will also check for cavities, gum disease, and any abnormalities. Some pets may need a surgical extraction of damaged tooth beyond repair. All procedures are carried out under general anaesthesia and our highly experienced team of vets and nurses are watching over every patient to minimise complications and make their recovery as smooth as possible.



We Offer 20% OFF on All Dental Procedures This Upcoming February!

This great offer will also include a complimentary dental consultation with one of our vets. If you have any questions or would like more information on our dental awareness month, please don’t hesitate to reach us via phone / email, or come and visit us in clinic. Our friendly staff would love to hear from you :)
