1-800-PetMeds® Helps Keep Pets’ Teeth Boo-tiful With After the Treats Sweepstakes

Dogs and cats may not gorge on candy around Halloween, but they are still prone to tooth decay and gum disease. To help pet parents avoid painful, costly dental issues, 1-800-PetMeds® is giving away 10 dental health care kits for cats and dogs.

Brushing is best, but not all pets are comfortable with it. A water additive like Be Fresh Dental Care Solution helps keep plaque from forming, while dental treats and chews help scrub away plaque before it forms tartar.

While veterinarians recommend that pets have their teeth brushed daily, only a small fraction of pet parents manage to brush that often. Just 2 percent of dog parents brush their dog’s teeth daily, according to a study published in the Journal of Veterinary Dentistry.

Cats and dogs may not eat sugary sweets, but they are still prone to dental issues. After your pet eats, food particles and saliva combine to form plaque. Plaque is a soft, sticky film that contains bacteria that attacks your pet's tooth enamel and damages the gums. If plaque is not removed, it hardens and forms tartar within 24 to 72 hours.

What’s more, pets may instinctively hide signs of dental pain until it becomes severe and difficult to treat. By brushing daily, or even just a few times per week, pet parents can keep their pet’s mouth healthy, fresh, and pain-free.

“Brushing is best, but not all pets are comfortable with it. A water additive like Be Fresh Dental Care Solution helps keep plaque from forming, while dental treats and chews help scrub away plaque before it forms tartar,” says Larissa Schenck, Director of Marketing at 1-800-PetMeds®. “For best results, use all three!”
