February is Pet Dental Health Month

February is Pet Dental Health month. Most pet owners don’t realize the importance of their pet’s dental health, but did you know that oral disease is the most commonly diagnosed health problem for pets? In fact, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS). The great news is pet owners can greatly reduce the risk of oral disease by simply making sure their pet is getting the dental care they need — regular, professional care from your veterinarian, as well as care at home from you.
