Does your furry four legged family member have halitosis? Studies by the American Veterinary Medical Association, Pedigree Pet Foods, and Banfield Pet Hospitals all concluded that 80-85% of all dogs and cats over the age of 3 have some level of dental disease.
The most common breeds afflicted with dental disease include: toy poodle, yorkie, maltese, pomeranian, sheltie, papillion dachshund, bichon frise, west highland white terrier, collie, miniature schnauzer, cocker spaniel, basset hound, and chihuahua. If you own one of these breeds, then you may already be noticing the foul odor and tartar build up along the gums.
It has been proven for years that dental disease can lead to kidney, liver, and heart disease. Loss of teeth and pain are also a common outcome of poor oral health. It is never fun to find out there is need for teeth extractions when routine cleaning and home care can help prevent it.
But there is GOOD NEWS!
February is National Pet Dental Health Month and is a great time to use that New Year’s resolution to get your pet’s teeth cleaned!
Riverside Animal Hospital is starting early by offering a 10% discount on dental cleaning procedures to help you and your furry loved ones. Call us at 563 264-0761 to ask about the details and schedule your appointment today!
