WAKE UP YOUR PET: Pet Dental Health

Posted: Updated:

WAKE UP YOUR PET: A big part of keeping your pet healthy includes dental care, says Dr. Chuck Coleman, Pet Medical Center of Pasco.

He says people often don't realize there is a problem with their pet's dental health.

He recommends twice a year check-ups. Pets may require full dental cleanings or minor procedures.

He says dogs benefit from chewing on hard solid chews. He says only about 2 percent of dog owners actually brush their dog's teeth.
