BRUSHING A CAT'S TEETH?

Ever wonder how to brush a cat's teeth? Often we seem to focus on brushing our dog's teeth, but cats get periodontal disease too! Take a look at an educational video on how to brush your CATS teeth!










Feline oral resorptive lesions are second only to periodontal disease in incidence of oral disease.  These lesions can be excruciatingly painful, especially when they are advanced. If you probe one of the lesions even under general anesthetic, the cat will react. However, most cats will not show evidence of oral pain, even when the tooth is fractured with an exposed root canal. Please read more on Feline Resorptive Lesions. OUCH!

PET EXPERT TIP OF THE DAY

8 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR DOG SAFE IN THE SUMMER
  1. Never, ever leave your dog in the car;
  2. Make sure your dog has unlimited access to fresh water;
  3. Make sure your dog has access to shade when outside;
  4. Take walks during the cooler hours of the day;
  5. When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces (like asphalt) because it can burn your dog's paws;
  6. If you think it's hot outside, it's even hotter for your pet – make sure your pet has a means of cooling off;
  7. Keep your dog free of external parasites (fleas, ticks) and heartworms – consult your veterinarian about the best product for your pet;
  8. Consider clipping or shaving dogs with long coats, and apply sunscreen to your dog's skin if she or he has a thin coat.

PET EXPERT TIP OF THE DAY!

Household pet tip for dogs from Blue Ribbon K9 Academy:

Train your dog to use a pet door by putting a dab of butter on the bottom edge of the flap. Have another person hold the dog on the side with the butter and you stand on the other side with treats. Your dog will lick the bottom of the flap, pushing it open while you encourage it through and offering treats. Happy Training!
