February is Pet Dental Health Month

February is Pet Dental Health Month, and it’s a perfect time to start the year off right by providing good dental care for your pet. Dental or periodontal disease can lead to many serious health and medical issues if left untreated. And untreated dental disease can be very painful for your pet and can even cause them to stop eating. The key to good dental care and managing dental disease is prevention.
