[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.
The giveaway runs from Tuesday February 1st, 2022, through Monday, February 28th, 2022. Everyone who enters from 12:01 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) February 1st, 2022 to February 28, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET is eligible to win. There will be a total of 8 winners.

I try and remember to brush them and get them cleaned by the vet every two years.
I don’t brush my dogs teeth but would love to start@
My senior dog enjoys dental chews on a regular basis.
I know my little Maltipoo needs dental cleaning but doesn’t like me to touch her teeth. I give her dental chews but that isn’t enough. I’d love to win your Dental Care Package!
My 2 seniors love dental chews. Brushing not so much.
Every time I get him groomed, I get his teeth brushed. He has dental chews in between. I really do want to start brushing his teeth though.

I have 2 Pekingese dogs and I need to start brushing their teeth. One is 11 and can’t be knocked out to have his teeth cleaned. Do I need to start ASAP.
I use an additive to Misty’s water for fresh breath.
Bella has been getting an additive to her water for the last 8 years. She also has her teeth cleaned yearly by her Vet. She has a great smile!
Meeko and Mia have perfect smiles thanks to their vet. I use an additive to their water and their breath is minty and fresh.
My Octavia has the cutest smile!
I tried to brush my dogs teeth a few times after buying dog brush and paste, but he hates it and I do not feel that I am doing well enough job and I do not want to damage his gums so I started buying the Greenies type bones that help with tarter and a treat that has toothpaste in the middle of it. That treat was called Naturals Brushless Toothpaste.
I give Riley greennies treats and put the dental additive in his water daily.
Minnie loves getting her teeth brushed every night!
I give my pups a dental bone every evening. At bed time they get their teeth brushed. Also add a dental additive in their water .
My animals only eat hard food and I give them bones regularly. That seems to keep them nice and clean. My old lady is 12 (Golden Retriever) and her teeth still look great!
We brush our dogs teeth, not as often as we should. We give her dental bones and treats to help. She loves the treats but hates the toothbrush. Thanks for the chance!
If they are happy, we are also very happy
my fur babies like licking the dental paste while brushing.
I give her dental bones and my son brushes her teeth periodically.
Our 12 pound Boston Terrier, Luna, gets dental chews but I need to add something else to her dental routine. Attempting to use toothpaste/brush on her teeth, though she’s hasn’t taken to it right away, we’re still trying.
I have two Golden’s. a male 14.5 and a Female 11. The female, Diamond was born with misaligned teeth. She loves to have her teeth brushed. When she sees me getting her toothbrush out (and that of her “brother’s”, Blaze, she runs and sits politely while i put the doggie tooth paste on their brushes. And absolutely loves the process. They are too old to put “under” for a good cleaning, so Denta Stix are our go to to help with removing plaque. This dual process seems to do the trick, as the vet always says, their teeth look great, esp at their age. Thank you for this opportunity.
