(PRESS RELEASE) COEUR D’ALENE, ID – Most pet parents are fully aware that annual vet visits, regular exercise and a nutritious diet are essential for a pet’s overall health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, dental care often goes unnoticed, yet it is just as important to implement into a pet’s daily routine. February is “Pet Dental Health Month,” the perfect time to promote regular oral health maintenance and check-ups for your pet. Oxyfresh, the leading provider of safe, environmentally friendly products for people and pets, offers a premium line of pet dental products that will help keep your pet’s breath fresh and their teeth smiling and healthy.

Dental disease is an infection of the teeth, gums and surrounding structures. It is the most common major health problem of cats and dogs today. In fact, it has been estimated that by age three, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some degree of gum disease. Ever since cats and dogs became domesticated, their natural source of “dental floss” and teeth cleaning (their prey) has been removed significantly from their diets. Canned and dried foods do not provide the same level of oral hygiene, and sadly, many pets suffer the consequences.

It’s crucial to pay attention to your pet’s smile because a disease that starts in the teeth and gums can eventually lead to kidney and heart disease or problems with the intestinal tract or joints. The key to managing dental disease is prevention. Pet parents must make a commitment to schedule their dog or cat’s annual oral examinations and cleanings, as well as practice regular dental care at home.

Different animals will exhibit different signs of possible dental disease, but there are a few common symptoms to be mindful of: redness of gums; bad breath; loose, discolored or broken teeth; tenderness around the mouth; drooling or dropping food; bleeding from the mouth; and loss of appetite or weight loss. It’s important to remember that although noticing one of these symptoms could be a signal of a greater problem, most of the time there are no signs at all since animals tend to instinctively hide their pain as a survival mechanism. With this said, prevention is essential to ensure optimal oral health and hygiene, which will minimize their chance of developing dental disease.

“Keeping your pet’s dental health in optimum condition is just as important as your own dental health,” shares Tom Lunneborg, vice president of product development for Oxyfresh. “If their mouth isn’t healthy, they are more susceptible to illness and periodontal disease. Pets are exposed to much more bacteria because they chew on everything. If they have bleeding gums, this is a direct opportunity for bacteria to enter their bloodstream. Thankfully we created a safe, simple and effective pet dental care line that will dramatically improve the oral health of your pet.”

Similar to all Oxyfresh products, their pet dental line is made in the USA, cruelty-free, non-toxic, safe, gentle and effective. Their products include a Pet Dental Water Additive, Pet Dental Breath Spray and Pet Dental Gel Toothpaste.

(PRESS RELEASE) The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has announced it is partnering with the nonprofit organization Pet Partners to help improve quality of life, social engagement and health of veterans through increased access of animal-assisted activities and animal-assisted therapy services throughout the VA health care system.

Pet Partners and the VA will train therapy animal teams and encourage VA medical facilities to establish and expand trained therapy animal visitation and AAA and AAT programs to give patients the sense of connection, comfort and joy that comes from spending time with animals.

“This partnership will add to the health care services and programs VA offers to veterans, as emerging research recognizes the positive effects interactions with animals can have on patients,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “VA’s work with Pet Partners will help veterans support well-being through animal-assisted activities and therapy, which research shows can be very beneficial.”

The partnership will also provide veteran communities with volunteer opportunities and integrate veterans and their families into Pet Partners activities and events.

According to a wide range of research and studies, the human-animal bond can lead to lower blood pressure, reduced risk for cardiovascular disease, and lessened anxiety, pain, and loneliness. Time with therapy animals not only promotes physical and mental health but also supports wellness across variables such as social interaction, rate of recovery and personal motivation.
