National Pet Dental Health Month

National Pet Dental Health Month

Don’t turn your nose to dog (or cat) breath! That smelly odor could signify health issues for a pet. Dental disease is one of the most common conditions veterinarians see, and unfortunately few pets show obvious signs of issues. Yet 80% of dogs and 70% of cats will have some form of dental disease before their third birthday.

Although pets don’t often get cavities, they are very susceptible to gum or periodontal disease—the number one illness found in both cats and dogs. These problems don’t simply just affect their mouth. They can have serious effects on major organs such as the liver, kidneys, or heart. However, there’s plenty of options and resources out there to improve and maintain your pet’s dental health as well as their overall health.

A healthy mouth can add years to your pet’s life, and that’s why we not only take part in National Pet Dental Health Month in February, but all year long. We stock a full range of dental products from tooth & finger brushes, wipes, toothpastes & gels, water additives, kits, chews, and supplements. Here’s a few of our favorites!

Stella & Chewy’s Dental Delights

These 4-in-1 dental treats for dogs are not only tasty, but very beneficial for your pet’s health! Fun and functional, their nubs and ridges do an excellent job at cleaning teeth while chewing. Also infused with peppermint and parsley, they do a wonderful job at freshening up breath while being an engaging method of cleaning—they are shaped to flip and roll, for extra fun!

WHIMZEES by Wellness

Just giving your pet one WHIMZEES per day, and they’ve got a fun, all-natural way to help clean teeth, freshen breath, and reduce plaque and tartar—all while they chew! WHIMZEES have been proven to help control plaque and tartar, improve breath odor, and decrease gingivitis. On top of that, they’re made with all natural, gluten free, hypoallergenic, non-GMO and vegetarian ingredients with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Mammoth Flossy Chews

Mammoth Flossy Chews are made from premium quality cotton-poly yarns ideal for interactive playing, tossing, and tugging. Flossy Chews dog toys encourage playtime and bonding between you and your pet while helping to maintain good dental hygiene.
