Pet Dental Month

Date: Thursday, February 01, 2018
Time: All Day
Location: nationwide event
Details: Occurs throughout the month of February. To educate owners of the importance of pet dental hygiene, February has been designated National Pet Dental Month by the American Veterinary Medical Society and the American Veterinary Dental Society. Unfortunately, dental care is often ignored by owners. Although dogs and cats rarely get cavities, plaque and tartar can form, causing gingivitis and periodontal disease (leading to tooth decay, bleeding gums and tooth loss). These bacteria can travel through the bloodstream and eventually damage major organs. Make sure to talk to your vet about your pet’s dental needs.
