National Pet Dental Health Month!
Don’t turn your nose to Fido’s or Fluffy’s bad breath! That odor might signify a serious health risk, with the potential to damage not only your pet’s teeth and gums but its internal organs as well.
Dental health is a very important part of your pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Your pet’s teeth and gums should be checked at least once a year by your veterinarian to check for early signs of a problem and to keep your pet’s mouth healthy.
To help promote dental awareness, we will be giving a 20% discount on dentals performed in February! Call us today to find out more information.
While February is National Pet Dental Health Month, dental health should be a daily ritual for pet owners all year long. If you need information on how to do this, we can help you!
Cold Weather Pet Safety
Like people, cats and dogs are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia and should be kept inside. Longer-haired and thick-coated dog breeds, such as huskies and other dogs bred for colder climates, are more tolerant of cold weather; but no pet should be left outside for long periods of time in below-freezing weather.
When walking your pet, stay away from ice. Avoid frozen ponds, lakes and other water.
Clean up any antifreeze spills immediately! Pets like the sweet taste of this deadly liquid.
Check your dog’s paws frequently for signs of cold-weather injury or damage, such as cracked paw pads or bleeding.
Just like you, pets prefer comfortable sleeping places and may change their location based on their need for more or less warmth. Give them some safe options to allow them to vary their sleeping place to adjust to their needs.
Many pets become lost in winter because snow and ice can hide recognizable scents that might normally help your pet find his/her way back home. Make sure your pet has a well-fitting collar with up-to-date identification and contact information. A microchip is a more permanent means of identification, but it’s critical that you keep the registration up to date.
