When I was a child, our dog got her teeth cleaned every few years and we pretty much forgot about oral health in between. In fact, we were naïve enough to believe that her crunchy dog biscuits actually helped control tartar (isn’t that what they claimed on the box?). Now, decades later, we have a much better understanding of the importance of dental hygiene.

Periodontal disease is extremely common, and it can cause your companion a lot of pain and misery. An inability to eat properly can lead to digestive issues, while infections in the mouth can cause serious health problems in other areas of the body, including the heart and kidneys.

The good news is that periodontal disease is preventable, and that’s the focus of this issue. Check out our article on four easy ways to maximize your dog or cat’s dental wellness, and discover some simple natural ways to combat bad breath in your pooch. Cat lovers can also turn to our Feline Wellness bonus section and read up on how diet can be used to improve our kitties’ dental health.

This issue also looks at the importance of supplements to canine and feline health. We present some valuable information on how to choose the right antioxidants for your pet, and also look at the importance of calcium to a home-prepared diet (did you know you can give him too much calcium, as well as too little?) In our Feline Wellness section, meanwhile, we reveal the top supplements for cats.
