Good dental hygiene is a crucial part of maintaining your pet’s overall health. Although pets don’t tend to get cavities, they are at risk for other dental issues such as periodontal or gum disease, making it the number one ailment found in both cats and dogs. Therefore, it is essential for pet owners to include dental care in their animal’s veterinary routine.
Without proper treatment, conditions such as periodontal disease can lead to painful chewing, bad breath, and tooth loss, compromising your pet’s health and quality of life.
To keep your pet healthy and smiling, the Animal Medical Center of Streetsboro is celebrating Pet Dental Health month throughout January and February, making it the perfect time to take advantage of our dental services and improve your pet’s dental health.

If you notice a brownish-gold buildup on teeth, close to the gum line, your pet has tartar build up on their teeth have tartar buildup. If you see bleeding or redness along your pet’s gum line, this may indicate they have gingivitis. Other signs to look out for include:
