Do you love to cuddle and kiss your pet but can’t stand its smelly breath? Every cat or dog owner has been there before. But, your pet’s breath might be more than just a stinky nuisance. Bad breath, clinically known as halitosis could be a sign of a significant health problem affecting your pet’s teeth, gums, kidneys, liver or heart.

Periodontal disease is the most commonly diagnosed clinical condition in cats and dogs. By the age of three,  most pets show signs of periodontal disease, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.  That’ll only worsen as your cat or dog ages, which means early intervention is a critical part of ensuring your pet’s dental health.

Fortunately for you and your fur ball, oral diseases are preventable with daily maintenance, frequent brushing and annual trips to your trusted vet. Since February is “Pet Dental Health Month,” it’s the perfect time for you to take control of your pet’s dental health on the path to a long, happy and healthy life!

Oral health is an essential part of your pet’s overall health and well-being. Failure to properly address dental health could lead to more serious issues as the toxins from periodontal disease are absorbed in the bloodstream. But, tartar and plaque buildup isn’t necessarily a cause for alarm – at least not yet. There are a few steps that you can take to support your pet’s oral health and help prevent further issues.

3 Ways to Improve Your Pet’s Dental Health

Routine checkups: Leave it to your vet to properly asses your pet’s teeth and gums to determine the root cause of bad breath. Annual cleanings are a critical part of your pet’s oral health and may help prevent serious health problems. You’ll want to schedule an appointment sooner if you notice broken, loose  or discolored teeth, abnormal chewing or drooling, reduced appetite, and pain, bleeding or swelling around the mouth.

  • Proven results in just 28 days!*

Brush, brush, brush: Most of us have never dared to take a close look, let alone brush our pets’ teeth. However, brushing once per week could help prevent plaque and tartar from forming on its teeth. Veterinarians note that routine brushing between dental cleanings is the best way to help keep your pet’s teeth healthy. Fresh breath and pearly whites certainly don’t hurt, either!

Try supplements! Can’t stand the hassle and mess of brushing your pet’s teeth? We can’t blame you! Instead, you can use Perio Support to make your life easier. Just sprinkle this tasteless, odorless powder over meals to maintain your pet’s dental health without the aggravation of brushing. Perio Support is easy to use, easy to remember and demonstrates clinically proven results in a double-blind testing of dogs.*

Between brushing, flossing and dental cleanings, we go to considerable lengths to take care of our own dental health. Shouldn’t we do the same for our pets? Say “yes” to your pet’s oral health and fresh breath during “Pet Dental Health Month” this February.

The article is interesting having just lost my 10 year old Shih Tzu to lymphoma. It paints a rosy picture and while it gives readers hope, I don’t mean to be a downer but what happened in my situation was anything but rosy. Though my dog was early stage, and we attempted chemo. Not all dogs will react positively to chemo. I spent $8K within less than a month due to two negative reactions to only the first two chemo attempts (two different drugs). Not to mention, not everyone has pet insurance though i was looking in December and my dog was diagnosed early January. So we went the non-chemo route…still far more expensive than the article mentions. I’m not just writing about the money…it seems far too many dogs are getting lymphoma and no one can tell for sure if it is the fertilizers/weed n feed products that are going on everybody lawns (without anyone knowing they cause this cancer – not labeled that they can cause cancer) or if it is genetic. My thought is if you don’t know for sure it was the fertilizers/weed products you also don’t know for sure that it’s not. If a product like weed/fertilizers were on the market and we found it caused cancer in children it would be regulated and off the market in a heart beat. Our pets are family, they are like children to many of us. We need to go after MONSANTO and have these products labeled!!! Or, not even used around pets.

Claw-biting Cutest Pet Contest Winners Unveiled with Top Honors Going to Pet Owners from Offices of Reps. Miller and Kelly, Sen. Rubio

Washington, D.C. – (September 29, 2015) The love of animals trumped politics tonight as the Animal Health Institute (AHI) brought together members of Congress and Hill staffers from both sides of the aisle for Pet Night on Capitol Hill. Tuesday night’s event marked the 19th year pet lovers have gathered for the popular event, which included the unveiling of the Cutest Pets on Capitol Hill. Top honors in this year’s contest went to “Killer” the dog, from U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller’s Office; “Mila” the cat, from U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly’s office; and “Mack” the horse, from U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio’s office.

         

[Winners: Killer from Rep. Miller’s Office, Mila from Rep. Kelly’s Office, and Mack from Sen. Rubio’s Office.]

“AHI’s Pet Night is a favorite on Capitol Hill. This gathering celebrates the bond between people and their pets and also shows us that regardless of politics, we can come together over a shared love of our animal friends,” said Alex Mathews, president and CEO of AHI. “Our fun event also serves as a chance to remind pet owners how the availability of medicine to keep animals healthy plays an important role in promoting the human-animal bond. Increased awareness and understanding about the relationship between human and animal health ultimately helps prevent disease transmission from pets and food animals and helps protect public health.”

During the event, U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader unveiled this year’s winners, who were selected via a two-part voting system – demonstrating that even in election season not everyone on Capitol Hill fights like cats and dogs.

First, a panel of Washington, D.C. celebrity judges narrowed a competitive field of hundreds of furry, feathered and scaly entries – nominated by members and staffers – down to the finalists for cutest dog, cutest cat and cutest exotic animal. The judges included: Francesca Chambers of the Daily Mail Online; Ashley Gallagher, DVM, of Friendship Hospital; Erwin Gomez of Karma Beauty Lounge; and Michael Schaffer, editor of Washingtonian. After the naming of finalists, the public voted online to select the winners; nearly 12,000 total votes were cast.

In addition to the Cutest Pets on Capitol Hill competition, Pet Night offered attendees the opportunity to meet this year’s celebrity pets – Jagger, canine star of the movie “Max,” and Frosty, who plays Larry the white cat in the hit television program “Modern Family.”
