VALLEY STREAM, NY — Central Veterinary Associates, P.C. is reminding pet owners that February is National Pet Dental Health Month and to have their pet’s teeth and gums cleaned on a regular basis.

National Pet Dental Health Month teaches pet owners that proper dental hygiene is equally as important for their pets. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), by the time a pet reaches two years of age, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some form of periodontal disease. Periodontal infections have been linked to diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease and other life-threatening illnesses.

While 80% of people brush their teeth at least once a day, many people do not do the same for their pets, the AVMA states. Central Veterinary Associates offers dental services, which include teeth cleaning and polishing, dental X-rays, tooth extractions and oral surgery.

“It is imperative that pet owners pay attention to their pet’s dental health,” said Dr. Steven Fox, DVM, Chief Executive Officer and President, Central Veterinary Associates. “Periodontal disease is very serious in animals and may result in significant health problems. Central Veterinary Associates offers comprehensive dental services, including a dental vaccine, to help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy. We can also schedule checkups for your pets and, in the event of a dental emergency, our Valley Stream facility has a hospital that is open around the clock, 365 days a year, with a veterinarian always on duty in our emergency room.”
