Our pets need dental care too

Dental care is very important for human health, and the same thing applies to a pet’s overall health. Dental disease is one of the most common medical conditions seen by veterinarians. Over 80% of dogs and cats over the age of three have dental disease.

Winter weather affects animals too

It is extremely important to be aware of the rapid and harsh weather changes, as they affect animals too.
