August is Dental month at Mulnix Animal Clinic!!!
As a certified veterinary nurse I am ashamed to reveal that I did not realize my 10 year old cats even had teeth until ½ of them had to be extracted! Some animals show no sign of having any dental disease. Animals that show any of these signs would benefit from a dental cleaning:
Drooling or bleeding from the mouth
Loss of appetite or unintentional weight loss
Prevention is the number one tool to combat dental disease in our furry friends. Brushing their teeth every day for most people is an impossible task, but every time you can brush their teeth helps prevent the plaque from forming into tartar.
