February is National Dental Month!

Hometown VeterinatyClinic asks, “ Did you know that dental disease is the most common medical problem in pets?”

Pets need daily dental care and professional dental cleanings just like humans. Dental disease in pets is the build up of tartar on the teeth.  If tartar is allowed to remain on the teeth, infections can develop in tooth pockets, along gum lines, and in the throat or tonsils.  These infections can enter the blood stream and cause kidney and heart disease. A professional dental cleaning is recommended for all pets that have tartar to prevent infections.  Most pets benefit from an annual dental cleaning.
