|FEBRUARY IS PET DENTAL HEALTH MONTH!
February has been designated as pet dental health month.
This month's newsletter contains information to help you learn more about caring for your pet's mouth.
|WICCA'S HEALTHY TEETH
February is Pet Dental Health month.
Meet Wicca from our Richmond Road / Sarcee (Glenbrook)
location in Calgary and learn about why she has such great teeth!
Wicca's weekly dental regime includes chewing lamb neck bones, elk rib bones, elk neck bones, and elk tendons, and limiting the amount of kibble she consumes. Wicca has a lot of allergies, so she is limited to the types of bones she can chew
, but all those elk and lamb bones are great for keeping teeth healthy.Wicca eats a raw diet, as well as some NRG. A raw food diet is excellent for improving the health of teeth and gums! Wicca is has been requesting a little more variety lately and has been dabbling a bit with dry food. She will be starting Leba III as a plaque preventative. Leba III is all natural and easy to administer!
Wicca is nine years old, has never had any dental work done and her teeth look cleaner than when her pet guardians got her at 14 months! (The condition of her teeth at 14 months was because she was fed a poor quality kibble for the first year of her life).
Wicca is often at the Richmond Road / Sarcee Tr SW (Glenbrook) store in Calgary if you want to say hi or talk to the knowledgeable staff about how to help keep your dog or cat's teeth healthy!
|WHY CATS AND DOGS NEED DENTAL CARE
Recognizing the importance of our pet's dental health is extremely important considering that by the age of 2, about 80-90% of our pets will suffer from some varying degree of dental disease.
Dental disease can range from gingivitis (minor - severe gum irritation) to periodontal (the structures holding the teeth in place begin to break-down). More severe cases of gum disease can even lead to life threatening heart, liver and kidney problems.
Symptoms of dental problems in dogs and cats can include:
- Red, swollen and bleeding gums
- Blood in the saliva
- Yellow-brown tartar at the gum line
- Persistent bad breath
DENTAL PROBLEM PREVENTION The best way to prevent dental disease is to keep your pet's immune system strong by feeding a healthy diet and by brushing their teeth daily.
Since most people do not have the time or inclination to brush their pet's teeth every day, there are other options to add to a weekly regime: Raw Bones, Elk Antlers as well as products like Plaque Off, Leba III and Petzlife.
