It’s National Pet Dental Health Month. Looking for a natural way to support your pet’s best oral health?
ProBioraPet® oral care probiotics are the unique solution for your pet’s best oral health
Isn’t your pet’s health a concern all year round? So why dedicate a whole month to Pet Dental Health?
Even the most loving pet owners often take a pet’s dental health for granted. So this month, let’s remind ourselves that dental disease in pets is more than just a cosmetic issue. Bad breath is not just annoying, it can be a sign of poor oral health and gum disease.
The truth is that according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some kind of oral disease by the age of three. It’s one of the most common problems faced by our four-legged family members.
“Dental health is a very important part of a pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems,” says Dr. John Howe, president of the American Veterinary Medical Association. When your dog or cat has reddened gums, discolored teeth, or bad breath, it could be a sign of serious oral disease. And oral disease can affect your pet’s overall health.
The natural solution for your pets’ oral health
You may be familiar with probiotics for digestive and immune health. ProBioraPet applies the same biological process to restore the natural balance in your pet’s mouth and enhance gum health, freshen breath and whiten teeth.
ProBioraPet contains our patented probiotic blend in a concentration specifically formulated to address the oral care needs of dogs and cats. It reinforces the positive bacteria in your pet’s mouth and crowds out the unhealthy bacteria, including those that can cause gum problems and bad breath. One scoop of ProBioraPet powder in your pet’s food every day ensures your pet of a balanced oral biome that’s so critical for healthy gums and teeth and fresh breath.
Dental disease sets off your pet’s immune system
Petmd.com reports that poor oral hygiene in pets is linked to other health issues, including diabetes and heart disease. Periodontal disease starts under the gumline with a substance called plaque that, in turn, can cause gingivitis, inflammation of the gums.
The harmful bacteria from dental infections can enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body, including the heart and the liver.
Prevention is the best medicine
Animals by nature hide pain, so you may not even realize there’s a problem. Keep an eye out for signs of distress in your pet. Pets with developing gingivitis and periodontal diseases often paw at their faces or mouths frequently, drool more than usual, and may be reluctant to eat harder foods.
The best thing you can do for your pet is to get out ahead of any problems. Help your dog or cat maintain a healthy, balanced oral microbiome with ProBioraPet oral care probiotics.
