What a cheerful way to remind us all to watch our pets’ health by taking care of their gums and teeth. I didn’t know February is National Pet Dental Health Month until I read this. It’s fun to read a good blog and learn something worthwhile at the same time. Thank you!

It’s so important to take care of your pet! Dental hygiene is not just for humans!

How interesting. I knew this month was children’s dental health month but I had no idea it was for pets too. This is good to know and important as well. I’m glad our country takes pet health just as seriously as we do our own. Pets need care too.
