For most of us, the practice of good oral hygiene is a fairly simple task, however, the same can't be said about our four legged friends. February is National Pet Dental Health Awareness Month and similar to humans, oral hygiene plays a big role in our pets overall health. Veterinarian Jen Gage with Bischoff Veterinary Clinic explains the options pet owners have to keep their animals teeth clean.
Gage says that the number one thing pet owners can do at home is to brush those teeth often.
Gage said that there are dental chews and treats that you can give your pets to help prevent tarter buildup and that water additives are also an option.
