If you asked any person what their morning routine is before leaving for work or school, it would be a very safe bet to assume that brushing their teeth and flossing would be a big part of their schedule (hopefully). Similarly, most people make it a priority to visit the dentist for a check-up at least once a year. It’s well understood that good dental hygiene is an important part of being a healthy human being, but many people don’t realize that dental health is important for their family pets as well. Like human beings, dental health affects more than just the gums and teeth of an animal – it can impact their heart and kidneys, as well.
The veterinarians of Animal Medical Clinic of CT, a veterinary hospital in Manchester, work to educate pet owners about how they can better care for the beloved four legged members of their family. Animal Medical Clinic of CT begins preventative care at 18 months for cats and dogs. Dental disease affects the majority of pets over the age of three, as many loving owners simply do not understand how essential it is to care for their pet’s dental health. Some breeds of dogs and cats, such as Maltese Terriers and Persians, are especially susceptible to dental disease if owners do not take precautions.
One of the easiest ways to keep your pet’s mouth healthy and prevent dental disease is to routinely brush their teeth and feed them dental health chews and oral medication via their water. Schedule regular annual dental cleanings with your trusted animal clinic and request a screening for any early signs of dental disease. With a little preventive dental care, your dog or cat’s teeth will be healthy and strong for many years to come!
