Help your pet stay happy and healthy by ensuring their mouth stays clean! Know the early signs and symptoms of dental disease and how you can help prevent it in your pet. The more you know, the more proactive you can be!

You may notice signs of dental disease as physical changes in your pet: yellow teeth, bad breath, bleeding gums, or problems chewing. But did you know that dental discomfort can also manifest as behavioral as well? Look for changes in your pet's behavior such as hiding, not wanting to be touched by the mouth, growling, hissing, or even nipping. These could be signs that your pet is in pain and needs a dental checkup! 

Our Community Clinic is offering a special dental care package to all families who have or call to set up dental appointments for their pet in the month of February (while supplies last.) ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—–๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ฎ๐˜ (๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿณ) ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿต๐Ÿฎ-๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ธ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐˜โ€™๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜.

Just like dogs or cats, rabbits play by tossing or pushing objects around with their mouths and chasing after them. When they're really playful, rabbits like to skip and race around their house or playpen like a kid who's had too much sugar. They jump on and off of things and like to run through tunnels or burrow through blankets. If you're lucky, your rabbit might even do a 'binky!' This is when they run and jump and kick out their back legs in excitement. Rabbits really are a joy to watch and play with when they're happy! 

Adorable sisters Daisy and Rose really are a prime example of happy bunnies! They love to play with each other and throw their toys around. They also are very curious and are always racing around when someone comes to visit. They will make wonderful companions to their new people!

Brushing your pet's teeth every day will promote good oral health and prevent potentially expensive procedures down the road. Plus, itโ€™s easier than you may think! There are even pet-specific brushes and toothpastes designed for dogs and cats. The accumulation of plaque and tartar can also be prevented by feeding your pet a special dental dietโ€”food thatโ€™s specifically designed to help preserve oral health.
