Oral Health Concerns and Your Pets

February is National Pet Dental Health Month. Oral health in pets is probably the most overlooked aspect of your pet’s health. But, fear not, your Ludington veterinarians are here to address this common problem and to steer your pet toward a lifetime of good health.



1.) Does your dog or cat have bad breath?

2.) Is your pet over the age of 3 or 4 years old?

3.) When you flip your pet’s lip up are your pet’s teeth white or brown?

If you answered yes to either the first or second question, or “brown” to the third question, then your animal most likely needs his/her teeth cleaned very soon.



At the Animal Hospital of Ludington, your Ludington veterinarians are prepared to answer this question. It is a known fact that proper oral health can add to your pet’s life. The doctors at the Animal Hospital of Ludington regularly observe that pets living well into their teens have mouths that their owners have maintained and kept clean. Dirty and diseased teeth and gums can raise havoc with the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. So to help maintain good general health, oral health is very important.
