February is Dental Month! Don’t forget to talk to you clients about good oral care for their pets. Check the pet’s teeth when they are in for their exam and encourage them to talk to the doctor about a long term plan for a healthy mouth. More than 80% of pets have periodontal disease, so the majority of pets need a dental cleaning. Discuss brushing, appropriate chew items such as dental chews or toys, and prevention of gingivitis.
The more information clients have, the better the chance they will actually pay attention to their pet’s mouth and dental health! Show them how to check their pet’s teeth and gums at home on a regular basis. Check out this dog’s pearly whites! She will make you smile too!(Click on the link below)
