If you are a regular reader of Shannon’s View from Here you know that my family recently adopted a mature kitty named Walter. We loved that his grumpy personality shows all over his face. It was easy to fall in love with Grumpy Walter. Part of our adoption agreement was that Walter be seen by a veterinarian no later than two weeks after the adoption (that was part of our plan anyways). Luckily our veterinarian is also our friend Amanda. Amanda did a quick once over of Grumpy Walter and quickly noticed that his teeth were bad. Like bad, bad. One was about to fall out and his front teeth were gone. Amanda said it was likely a side effect of a life on streets and lack of dental care. Now we know possibly why he looks so grumpy.
Bella -our rescued Lab- is completely the opposite of Grumpy Walter. Bella’s teeth are fantastic for her 8+ years. Bella was a breeders dog so in all likelihood she was seen regularly by a veterinarian. When we picked her up a bag of dog food was included in the price (sad eh?). It was a big bag of – honest to goodness- Royal Canin food. It was not the dental one but it is the kind I would choose today. Royal Canin Dental helps to “prevent the accumulation of plaque and tartar while meeting the specific nutrient and energy requirements of adult dogs”.
Other benefits of Royal Canin Dental include:
- Proven triple action dental care
- Supports joint health
- Supports digestive health
- Fortifies natural defenses
February is Dental Health Month for pets so this makes it the perfect time to remind you to ask your veterinarian about dental health. Make sure to ask!
