February is National Pet Dental Health Month.
Just like for us humans, it's important to take proper care of your pet’s teeth, because if left untreated, plaque and tartar buildup can progress to painful periodontal disease. Maintaining healthy teeth and gums helps protect the body's other organs, like the heart and the kidneys, from the damaging effects of dental disease.
Having sharp points removed from your horses’ teeth regularly will help prevent ulcers from forming in their mouths and will aid in optimal feed utilization. Annual dental exams are essential for proper health.
