February is National Pet Oral Health Month!

Dental care is just as important to your pet as it is to you.  Over 70% of all adult pets suffer from periodontal disease, meaning that they have loss of the supporting structures of their teeth which often results in loose teeth, changes in behavior, bacteria in the blood stream and damage to vital organs.  That is why the Doctors at Bear Creek Veterinary Care recommend a yearly Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment and Treatment exam (COHAT) for your pet.  Proper oral health care, both professionally and at home, can help extend your pet's happy and healthy years.  Indications that your pet might be in need of oral health care include:

  • Bad breath
  • Reluctance to chew
  • Change in chewing behaviors
  • Reluctance to allow home care
  • Broken or discolored teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Decreased appetite
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Rubbing of the face with paw or on carpeting

Contact us today to discuss your pet's oral health and ask what you can do to keep your pet's mouth and body healthy.

When my 8 year old dog had a decreased appetite I took him in to see Dr. Fernyak. Turns out he had an infection and a fractured tooth that was causing him to not want to eat. Less than 24 hours after the COHAT Charlie was back to normal :) Thank you Bear Creek!
