Not only is it Valentine’s Day, February is also official Pet Dental Health Month. Poor dental health can lead to tooth decay and stinky breath — and no one wants to smell that when snuggling up with their favorite pet. Here are some product that can help you keep your pet’s breath fresh, and its gums and teeth healthy!
Virbac C.E.T. Chews
C.E.T. chews are one of the number 1 recommended dental chews by vets. These enzymatic rawhide chews come in different sizes as well as a cat formula. The chews combine a natural antiseptic and an abrasive texture that work with a pet’s chewing motion to help control plaque and tartar. Because they are chicken flavored, the chews are very appealing to many pets. C.E.T also makes a dental rinse and pet toothpaste.
Toothpaste and Toothbrush
Both dogs and cats can benefit from having their teeth brushed at least every other day. Start by placing a small drop of pet-specific toothpaste on your finger as a treat, then slowly move to using a toothbrush or finger brush. Once your pet has become accustomed to the toothpaste on the brush, begin a light brushing movement! Over time, many pets view tooth brushing as a special treat. We carry both toothbrushes and finger brushes, as well as pet-specific toothpaste in flavors such as peanut butter, chicken, and vanilla mint.
Greenies Dental Treats
The unique texture of Greenies Dental Bones for dogs help remove plaque and tartar buildup as well as stimulate gums and freshen breath. The weight-specific sizes help guarantee that the bone is the proper texture and firmness to clean your dog’s teeth properly. The bones are designed for every day treats, and therefore are low in fat! Greenies also makes Feline Dental Treats for cats. The treats are shaped like miniature toothbrushes and they come in a six flavors.
Dental Fresh Liquid
Just adding a Dental Fresh to your pet’s water bowl to equates brushing every time your pet takes a sip! The formula attacks bacteria and helps reduce and prevent plaque buildup. It is odorless and flavorless, so it won’t effect your pet’s drinking.
