We’ve talked a lot about teeth this month – why it’s important for your pet to have a thorough dental cleaning, what happens during that cleaning, and some of the problems that can result from poor dental care (like plaque, gingivitis, and periodontal disease). So how can you help keep your pet’s mouth healthy?
Annual veterinary visits are important so your veterinarian can examine your pet’s mouth. This will help us find any problems early, so we have the best chance of treating any issues. But dental care at home is important, too! And we have some things to help you with that.
Got a dog? Check out the oral hygiene kit. It comes with a fingerbrush to get you started on the tooth brushing path, a sample of dog toothpaste, and a double-ended toothbrush to use once your pooch has gotten used to regular brushing.
We also have a variety of treats (like the C.E.T. original and C.E.T. HEXtra dog chews) that have abrasive action (to help scrape plaque off their teeth) and an antiseptic action to help keep bacteria populations down. All the dog chews come in petite, medium, large, and extra large sizes. These chews are also available for auto-delivery, so you can keep a fresh supply coming right to your door without having to remember to pick some up at the store or hop online to order when you’re getting low!
Are you a cat person? We’ve got you covered, too! There’s an oral hygiene kit for kits that includes a fingerbrush to get you started, a sample of seafood flavored toothpaste, and a larger cat toothbrush (for when you’re ready to graduate).
And so the cats don’t feel left out, there are also some mouth-healthy treats for them! Just like the dog versions, the cat chews are abrasive so they help to scrape plaque off your kitty’s teeth, and have an antiseptic action to help control bacteria populations. The original C.E.T. chews are available in fish or chicken flavor, and come in bags of 30 or 90.
The C.E.T. HEXtra cat chews are available in fish flavor, and come in a one-month supply for one cat.
Auto-ship is also available for the cat treats, so you never have to worry about running out!
With just one treat a day, you can help keep your pet’s mouth healthy. But, don’t forget your annual veterinary examination – some plaque can build up in places the treats and brushes can’t get to, and most pets will still need occasional thorough dental cleanings.
