It's OK to Not Be Concerned About Your Pet's Oral Health

    Failure to maintain your pet's oral health can lead to serious gum disease and significantly decrease your pet's overall quality of life.  When started at a young age, many pets enjoy teeth brushing!  Even many older cats and dogs can learn to love it when you introduce it slowly and make it fun.  Visit your veterinarian for toothbrushing pointers and advice -- such as avoiding using toothpaste for people because the fluoride can cause health problems in dogs and cats.

    If your pet is currently suffering from halitosis, or you suspect a tooth related problem, call your veterinarian to schedule an oral health evaluation.

Neutering Makes Dogs Soft

    Neutering male dogs can quiet certain unpleasant tendencies (such as mounting behavior and urine marking) when done at a young age.  At the same time, it won't diminish skills that are characteristic of a breed -- like hunting.  What's more, neutering also can help protect against testicular cancer and an enlarged prostate.
