[Giveaway] PetMeds® Keeps Pets Smiling For Dental Health Month!
Dental disease in pets is common but can be prevented with daily at-home care. To help raise awareness, PetMeds® is giving away dental care packages to 8 lucky pet parents.
February marks Pet Dental Health Month, sponsored by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA.) In recognition of the month-long event, PetMeds® is helping to raise awareness of dental disease in dogs and cats by giving away dental care packages.
According to the AVMA, around 70-80 percent of cats and dogs have some form of periodontal disease by their third birthday. While some pets have visible discoloration and tartar, most dental disease occurs below the gumline, so it’s not always obvious to pet parents when their cat or dog is not getting enough dental care.
Tartar formed along and below the gumline must be removed by a veterinarian during an in-office cleaning. Daily at-home maintenance can keep tartar from coming back. Pet parents should look to daily brushing as their first line of defense against dental disease. Water additives, tooth wipes, gels, and dental treats can supplement regular brushing.
It’s not enough to focus on fresher breath, Bacteria and inflammation due to dental disease can affect your pet’s overall wellness, and even impact their heart, kidneys, and digestive health.
All cat and dog parents are invited to enter the Keep Pets Smiling Giveaway for a chance to win a dental care package that will include Be Fresh Dental Care Solution, Vetradent Dental Wipes, a C.E.T. Fingerbrush. The prize package will also include C.E.T. IntelliDent Cat Bites or C.E.T. Enzymatic Oral Chews for dogs.
