Brushing My Pets Teeth?
Brushing your pets' teeth may sound crazy, but dental care is actually an important aspect of your pets' health! Just like us, pets can get bacteria and plaque buildup, which left untreated can lead to long term health issues, which can affect the kidney, liver, and heart! Here's an in-depth article on the importance of pets' dental health from the American Veterinarian Medical Association (AVMA).

"Pet Dental Care
Dental health is a very important part of your pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Your pet’s teeth and gums should be checked at least once a year by your veterinarian for early signs of problems and to keep your pet’s mouth healthy. Have your pet’s teeth checked sooner if you observe any of the following problems:
Broken or loose teeth
Extra teeth or retained baby teeth
Teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
Reduced appetite or refusal to eat
Pain in or around the mouth
Bleeding from the mouth
Swelling in the areas surrounding the mouth
