February is Pet Dental Health Month! When was the last time you had your furry family member’s pearly (or not-so-pearly) whites checked? Don’t turn your nose up to your pet’s bad breath – your pet’s dental health is just as important as your own!
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of three. Some key indicators that your dog or cat may have dental disease include:
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Discolored/tarter covered teeth
- Discomfort when touched within the mouth area
- Excessive drooling/dropping of food when chewing
- Bleeding from the mouth
- Loss of appetite/weight loss
Fortunately, with education and awareness, more pets are getting the dental care they need. Preventative dental care is the best way to help prevent severe pet health problems in the future.
During the month of February, the Barkery is offering 25% off all dental health products plus ½ price teeth brushing with the purchase of any other spa/grooming service!
Stop by either Brookside or Lee’s Summit Barkery location all February long and take the steps you need to prevent oral disease in your pet. It’s time to get to brushing!
