February is National Pet Dental Health Month!
February is National Pet Dental Health Month!

It is hard not to love those sweet kisses from our furry friends, but let's be honest- sometimes those kisses are packing a smelly punch! Believe it or not, pets should not have bad breath! Foul-smeling breath can be a sign of dental disease and if left untreated, can lead to even more serious health problems.

Luckily, there are a ton of different products and services out there that can help us keep our pets mouths healthy and smelling fresh! Find out what works best for you and your pet-- It can be as involved as daily brushing or as simple as adding supplements to your pets food or water. Enzymatic dental treats work best for some, while others prefer complete dental diets. Often times a thorough dental scaling and polishing under anesthesia is recommended.

If you are curious about your pets dental health status, schedule an appointment with your veterinarian. We are currently offering 20% off cleanings for the month of February here at Austin Veterinary Hospital! Initial consults are free when cleanings are scheduled!
