How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth: Video Instructions

Your dog's dental health is an integral part of his overall health. Dental disease, if left unchecked, can have serious consequences all over your pet's body, involving his heart, blood, and internal organs. Bacteria originating in the mouth can be carried through the bloodstream into many other areas of his body, causing infection and illness.

Your pet's veterinarian will recommend periodic oral examinations, but that may not be enough. To keep your dog's teeth and gums healthy, you must routinely brush them. the following video gives step-by-step instructions on the correct way to brush your dog's teeth.




Feline Heartworms... A Hidden and Deadly Threat

Dog owners are well aware of the threat of heartworm disease, but many pet owners would be shocked to know that their cats are in danger as well. Heartworms are spread by mosquitoes and are capable of infecting cats in addition to dogs. Unfortunately, our cats rarely show physical signs of this infection and are more likely to die due to their body's reaction to the parasite. The good news is that your veterinarian can help you prevent this deadly feline disease.

Cats are abnormal hosts to heartworms and these heartworms will live shortened lives. You might think that this is a good thing but, heartworms actually can cause more serious and severe disease in cats than they do in dogs. It is not unusual for a dog to live for years with 50 worms in their heart. But a cat with a single heartworm can die suddenly, often with no apparent clinical signs whatsoever. In addition, your "inside only" kitty is just as susceptible as the outdoor tomcat. Watch this video to learn more.
