Pet Dental Health Month: The Importance of Oral Care for Pets

February is Pet Dental Health Month and at Ridgeline Veterinary Clinic located in Cathedral City, California, we want to remind pet owners of the importance of oral care for their furry companions.

Just like humans, pets need regular dental check-ups and cleanings to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Dental disease is one of the most common health issues seen in pets, and if left untreated, it can lead to serious health problems such as heart and kidney disease.

Preventative care is key when it comes to maintaining your pet's oral health. This includes regular teeth brushing, dental chews and treats, and annual dental cleanings and check-ups.

Brushing your pet's teeth at least twice a week with a pet-specific toothbrush and toothpaste can help remove plaque and tartar buildup. Dental chews and treats can also help to keep teeth clean and healthy.

Annual dental cleanings and check-ups are also important for maintaining your pet's oral health. During these appointments, our veterinarians will perform a thorough oral examination and clean your pet's teeth to remove any plaque and tartar buildup. They will also check for any signs of dental disease and recommend any necessary treatment.

If your pet is showing signs of dental disease, such as bad breath, difficulty eating, or excessive drooling, it's important to bring them in for an examination. Our veterinarians will be able to diagnose and treat the issue to prevent it from progressing and causing more serious health problems.

At Ridgeline Veterinary Clinic, we understand how important your pet's oral health is to its overall well-being. That's why we are dedicated to providing the best care possible. During Pet Dental Health Month, we are offering special discounts on dental cleanings and check-ups. Don't miss out on this opportunity to keep your pet's teeth and gums healthy.
