February is National Pet Dental Health Month and we want to make sure your pup’s pearly whites are, well, pearly white. While diet, training, exercise and grooming are important, your pet’s dental health plays just as big a factor in their well being.
Dental Care and Warning Signs
- Doggy Breath
- In the long run, poor dental hygiene can end up being a costly medical issue. First signs of dental or gum disease could be “doggy breath.” Most of us just expect it from our pups but persistent bad breath can indicate your dog needs better dental care.
- Brush Regularly
- If you’re not brushing regularly, the plaque and tartar build up can eventually lead to diseases such as gingivitis. Diseases like periodontal disease can lead to severe pain, tooth loss, abscesses and bone loss. While daily brushing is recommended, brushing 3-4 times a week will go a long way in keeping your pet healthy and happy.
- Long Term Health Effects
- Putting off proper dental hygiene for too long can lead to systemic diseases such as heart, liver, and kidney disease. Bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and lead to serious infections and organ damage. By brushing regularly and keeping an eye on your pets dental health, it’s easy to avoid these serious and expensive healthy issues.

Founded in 2003, Petzlife Products are dedicated to creating innovative, all-natural products that improve pet’s lives. The Petzlife Oral Care system is a complete, 100% all-natural solution to your pet’s oral care needs. All products are human grade, in fact it’s safe enough to use on people. Every ingredient is sourced from reputable suppliers. The secret to its effectiveness is its main ingredient: a specially formulated proprietary blend of grapefruit seed extract along with other natural herbs.

These soft and gentle teeth brushes are easy to use and serve great as an applicator of Petzlife Oral Care Spray or Oral Care Gel. These come in a pack of three and are ideal for cleaning teeth and massaging around the gum line.

Dental Health Services at Healthy Spot
- Teeth Brushing from Healthy Spot Grooming
- The next time you drop off your pup for a spa day with us you can opt for our teeth brushing services. We’ll make sure your pup is calm and relaxed before we start brushing so they learn to enjoy the experience. While brushing helps eliminate some build up on teeth it does not replace full dental cleanings which should be performed on a regular basis.
- K9 Grillz Anesthetic Free Dental Cleaning
- We also offer in-store dental cleanings from K9 Grillz. They offer anesthesia-free teeth cleaning which is a gentle, safe and affordable alternative to traditional teeth cleaning which requires your pet to undergo anesthesia. Dr. Thomas’ process puts your pet in a calm, relaxed environment using gentle towel-wrapping to put your pet at ease. He then uses professional sanitized equipment to clean your pets teeth without the use of harsh anesthesia. All February long, if you come in for a K9 Grillz teeth cleaning session, you’ll receive a free Healthy Spot take home dental pack.
