National Pet Dental Health Month 2015
February 1 marks the beginning of National Pet Dental Health Month. More than just a cosmetic issue, yellow teeth and bad breath can be a sign of serious disease in our pets, which may affect their kidneys, livers, and hearts. Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets, with most dogs and cats becoming affected by age 3. In this podcast, Dr. Jan Bellows, past president of the American Veterinary Dental College, talks about the importance of dental health for our pets.
