Pet Health News
Our recent winter is one we're looking forward to leaving behind, and it officially ends this month. As you look forward to spring, the Weckwerth Animal Hospital veterinary team encourages you to take a few minutes to consider seasonal hazards from your pet’s perspective. By taking the time to pet-proof your home and yard, as well as being proactive with parasite prevention, you and your pet can fully enjoy the season together!
Did you know that it’s National Pet Dental Health Month? The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) started this awareness campaign several years ago to alert people about the importance of caring for their pet’s oral health. Although most pet owners take excellent care of their dog or cat, many often overlook tooth brushing and scheduling regular professional cleanings. The result is that 80 percent of companion animals have some form of dental disease by the time they reach age three. The Weckwerth Animal Hospital veterinary team encourages you to strongly consider the importance of dental health for your pet.
