DR. EVAN ANTIN
Dr. Antin Discusses the Importance of Dental Hygiene
in Dogs and What We Can Do to Keep Our Pets Healthy
 

 

DR. EVAN ANTIN, Animal Expert, Veterinarian, Host of Animal Planet’s “Evan Goes Wild”
 
BACKGROUND:
Dog owners consider their four-legged friends a part of the family, and like any family member, a dog’s health is important. For pets, one of the most common signs that something is wrong is a dental problem. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), a pet’s teeth and gums should be checked at least once a year by a veterinarian. Good dental hygiene is just as important for pets as it is for humans, yet this is often overlooked.
 
On June 5, Dr. Evan Antin will discuss why dental health is an important part of a dog’s overall health routine. He’ll also offer a few tips on the best ways to keep your dog’s teeth healthy at home, such as:
·         Regular dental check-ups at the vet
·         Daily teeth care: brushing your dog’s teeth, dental chews and toys that help clean a pup’s teeth as they chew, and crunchy kibble
·         Look for warning signs of dental issues
