Pet Food and Cold Weather

Keep your pet at a healthy weight throughout the winter. Some pet owners feel
that a little extra weight gives their pet some extra protection from cold, but
the health risks associated with that extra weight don’t make it worth doing.

to keep them warm – talk to your veterinarian about your pet’s nutritional needs
during cold weather.

How Pet Dental Disease Starts

Pet dental disease starts out as a bacterial film called plaque. The bacteria attaches to the teeth. When the bacteria die they can be calcified by calcium in saliva. This forms a hard, rough substance called tartar or calculus, which allows more plaque to accumulate. Initially, plaque is soft and brushing or chewing hard food and toys can dislodge it. If left to spread, plaque can lead to gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums, causing them to become red and swollen and to bleed easily.
