1-800-PetMeds® Helps Pet Parents Celebrate Pet Dental Health Month With The Something to Smile About Sweepstakes

Delray Beach, Florida, February 03, 2020 – Did you know that according to the American Veterinary Dental Society, over 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of dental disease by age 3?
Smelly breath, irritated gums, difficulty eating, and tartar buildup are all signs that your pet needs help keeping their teeth clean. In the long run, poor dental health can lead to tooth loss, expensive oral surgery, and infections that can spread bacteria to the rest of the body. Fortunately, preventative care can keep your pet’s mouth fresh, clean, and healthy.
February is Pet Dental Health Month, the perfect time to make easy changes to your daily routine for sweeter kisses and a healthy mouth. Schedule an appointment with your veterinarian to evaluate your pet’s teeth and gums, and to discuss whether your pet may need a professional cleaning.
Back at home, you can support your pet’s oral health by brushing their teeth with a toothpaste formulated for pets at least a few times per week. If your pet won’t let you brush their teeth, tooth wipes, dental treats, and water additives can help keep their teeth clean without the fuss.


“If your cat or dog hates brushing, a tasty, chicken flavored pet toothpaste can help,” says Larissa Schenck, Director of Marketing at 1-800-PetMeds®. “You can also add a dental additive to their water bowl and use dental treats, and these products can all be used together or in place of brushing. You just need to find a routine that works for you and your pet.”

The dog dental care package will include a toothbrush & toothpaste kit, a pack of Max’s Dental Wipes, Be Fresh Dental Care Solution, VetriScience Perio Support, Crumps' Plaque Busters, and a TropiClean Floss Rope Ball with Liquid Floss.
