That’s right, August is Pet Dental Health Month. While we don’t treat them, it’s the perfect time to check in with your vet and help make your dog smile. But do you know how to identify if your dog’s smile is actually a healthy one? If you think putting up with “dog breath” is just part of owning a dog, think again. Bad breath is not normal, not healthy and is often a warning sign of oral disease.
Meanwhile for us humans, the second week of August is National Smile Week!
July’s mouth assault continues in August with National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, National Watermelon Day, National Rice Pudding Day, S’mores Day, National Filet Mignon Day, National Creamsicle Day, National Spongecake Day, National Peach Pie Day, National Waffle Day, National Banana Split Day, National Cherry Turnover Day, National Toasted Marshmallow Day and National Trail Mix Day!
And, of course, all our suggestions about NOT skipping your brushing, flossing and checkups still apply – for you and your dog, toto.
