Pet Dental Care is Too Important to Ignore

Smile! A clean mouth is just as important to the health of your pets as it is for the human members of your family. Unfortunately, many pet dental issues are due to our lack of discipline and misinformed ideas of proper oral hygiene.

In this week's issue we show you how to keep your pets’ teeth in good shape, both with prevention and with maintenance. Our feature article focuses on the basics of doggie dental problems, while our health section details whether some oral symptoms can be the result of your dog's teeth not growing normally. And because cats need dental health care too, our top ten slideshow is all about proper feline oral hygiene, and when a simple cleaning isn’t enough. So, let's keep all our pets' pearly whites glistening!
