Pets First Video Series: Dental Hygiene for your Furry Friends

In this episode of the Pets First Video Series, Sarah Jane meets with Veterinarian Dr. Amy Johnson from South Mission Animal Hospital to discuss the importance of dental hygiene in dogs.

Dr. Johnson explains that there are many preventative measures that you can take to prevent dental appointments for your dog including regular brushing and dental chews.

She also stresses the importance of bringing your pup in for their annual physicals. In these appointments, they check the dog’s mouth to make sure their pearly whites are healthy! You can keep an eye out for problems at home too! If you’re in-between visits, watch for stinky breath, stained teeth, a buildup of tartar, and lip licking.

Watch the video for Dr. Johnson’s dental hygiene best practices and tricks for brushing your dog’s teeth.

Join us every month for the next 11 months as we cover a wide variety of different topics on how to take care of your fluffy family members and how to give them the best life.
