Bad breath (halitosis) is often the first sign of dental disease in your pet. Approximately 75% of dogs and cats have dental disease as early as 3 years of age. Poor dental health can lead to painful infections, poor appetite and tooth loss, as well as affecting vital organs including the heart, liver and kidneys. Good oral hygiene is as important for your pet, as it is for you.
There are many ways you can maintain good dental health for your pet, including: teeth brushing, types of foods, water additives, along with a professional scale and polish at your vet.
August is the Australian Veterinary Association’s Pet Dental Health month. During the month of August we are offering 10% off all dental procedures.
Any pet that has a dental procedure during the month may enter our competition to win a hamper full of dental goodies.
All you have to do is take a photo of your pet’s beautiful smile and send it to us via email firstname.lastname@example.org We will select a dog and cat winner at the end of the month!
So it’s a good time to get up close and personal and check out your pet’s teeth- they may just need attention!
