Each February, National Pet Dental Health Month reminds us how important it is to look after our pet's teeth and oral health and teaches us how we can help maintain a healthy dental regime with our pets.
Oral care is a really important component of your pet's overall health, not just making your pet’s smile sparkle or breath nice and fresh! According to statistics, 80% of dogs and 7-% of cats begin to show signs of oral disease by the age of 3. Just like us, plaque and tartar can build up on your pet’s teeth leading to dental and gum problems and can even lead to secondary issues such as inflammation of important organs. Maintain oral health can be done through regular checks with your vet, but also you can play an important part at home to check your pets' teeth and keep their oral health in top condition.
We have a range of solutions available to help you keep your pet’s oral health on top form. Take a look at the different types of oral care we offer.

Dog Chews and Toys
You can also use non-edible bones or chews as a home dental care. Dogs have a natural urge to chew and chewing helps with reducing tartar and plaque build-up on the teeth.
