2021 Pet Holidays and Veterinary Awareness Days

Pet Dental Health Month

February 2021

Our pet’s dental health is vital for their overall health and quality of life. A diseased or painful mouth can prevent your pet from enjoying daily activities, reduce their appetite, and even lead to more serious health conditions. But most dental disease is preventable with regular, at-home maintenance and professional dental cleanings.

AMC’s board certified dental specialist, Dr. Dan Carmichael, discusses the importance of dental health and how to brush your pet’s teeth below.
