As a dog owner, there will come a time in your life when you hear the words “canine dental cleaning”. As part of your dog’s dental health, cleanings are a way to ensure that your dog’s teeth are doing well on the outside (pearly whites, odourless breath, etc.), as well as on the inside (strong roots and enamel, etc.).
As doggie parents, we can all agree we want our dogs to have healthy teeth and mouths. A good dental care routine for our dogs has many benefits – it is not just about clean white teeth and preventing bad dog breath. Bacteria in the plaque can go into the bloodstream of a dog and cause organ damage as it can spread to the heart, kidneys and liver.
It’s that time of year! The time when you and your pets will be rushing outside to enjoy the warm summer months to its fullest. It’s also the time when many pets become more at risk of external (eg. Ticks) and internal parasites (eg. Heartworm) which is why owners must be aware and familiar with any changes that may occur in their pet as a result of these parasites. This article will focus on ticks.
