  • (1888PressRelease) August 26, 2010 - August is Pet Dental Health Month in Australia and as part of Petitude's advocacy on pet health and responsible pet ownership, the online pet store encourages its customers, subscribers and web visitors to schedule a dental checkup for their pets to ensure the best dental health possible.

    Dental disease is probably one of the most common health problems diagnosed amongst our domestic pets today. This can result in tooth decay, infected and bleeding gums and in more serious cases, can cause problems involving the heart and kidneys. The symptoms of dental disease can range from subtle to extreme. One of the most common symptoms is bad breath or halitosis. In fact, a pet with dental disease will cry in pain when you touch it anywhere near its muzzle. Another symptom is a partial or complete inability to eat or the tendency to be anorexic. A pet that has this problem may eagerly go to the food bowl, and either just looks at the food or drop the food out of its mouth after only a few bites. Other pets might drool from one or both sides of the mouth. The worst part is that many pets do not show any symptoms until the problem is already severe.

    Our pets need not experience or suffer from dental disease. Dental disease, in general, can be prevented with proper diet and regular dental checkups. Also, appropriate feeding and early detection can prevent or delay the development of dental diseases. Veterinarians also recommend that you brush your dog's teeth at least twice a week using a special finger brush designed for them. It would also help if you use a pet toothpaste which come in flavours so that it will be easier for you to brush your dog's teeth. Chew toys and rawhide bones can also be used in removing plaque buildup along the gum line. Dental cleaning at least once a year is also one of the best ways to prevent any dental disease.

    To help raise awareness of pet dental health and encourage pet owners to have their pet's dental health checked, Petitude is inviting all pet owners in Victoria, Australia to take advantage of RSPCA Victoria's FREE pet dental checks throughout this month of August 2010. RSPCA Victoria is a non-government community based animal welfare charity and two of their veterinary clinics, located in Burwood East and Pearcedale (Victoria), are providing free dental checks in August, which coincides with Pet Dental Health Month.
