EverythingDogBlog #134 - Pets Need Dental Care, Too

(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday – De-Lightful Dog Logo
It’s February so that must mean Pet Dental Health Month! Good oral health is necessary for good overall health and nutrition for our best friends - it plays a very important role.
As a reminder, click on this link to see the HillsPet-designed logo for Pet Dental Health Month, which has been recently ‘modernized.’ You will see this logo all over the Internet, all month long!
The aqua color matches the color of the ‘t/d’ ‘name’ on the package of Hill’s canine prescription diet* for oral health, t/d® Canine Dental Health. You can also purchase other Hill’s dog food products including treats with dental health benefits for your special canine through pet specialty retailers.
My Pet Store and More!
The most popular dental products at My Pet Store and More on Route 40 in Ellicott City, Maryland, are made by Ark Naturals - Plaque Zapper (a water additive, with no odor or taste) and toothpaste chews. According to owner Chris Houk, this fun and colorful store (my description) also carries the Tropiclean dental kits and gel (and specializes in all animals – even horses and fish). If they don’t have it, they can get it for you!
Rope toys are also a great way to keep a dog’s teeth and gums clean and healthy (they work like dental floss but must be used with supervision, of course, especially if your dog is a destroyer-dog).
Of course there are many other toys, toothbrushes, finger brushes and treats to help with your canine’s teeth care. Stop in and ask Chris!
Clipper’s Canine Cafe 
Kate Bowman of Clipper’s Canine Café in Savage, Maryland, recently told EverythingDogBlog that they stock all sorts of different products for teeth - dental bones, toothpaste and toothbrushes, dental wipes, dental supplements, etc., AND they will all be 15% off for the rest of the month! Still plenty of time to visit Clipper and stock up for your dog’s health!

Clipper the Lab is celebrating his 12th birthday this Saturday from 12-3pm. Come help him! And while you are there, meet some of America's other favorite dogs, the beagles, from the Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland from 1-3 pm.
