To Brush or Not to Brush--That is the Question.
February Is National Pet Dental Health Month and EOTL is celebrating your animal’s “pearly whites” with sales on dental products all month long!
Fido or Fluffy’s bad breath could be more than a smelly annoyance; it might signify a serious health risk with the potential to damage not only the animal’s teeth and gums but its internal organs as well.
To address the significance of oral health care for pets, several veterinary groups are sponsoring National Pet Dental Health Month in February. Sponsors include the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS), Academy of Veterinary Dentistry, American Veterinary Dental College, Academy of Veterinary Dental Technicians, Veterinary Oral Health Council and Hill’s Pet Nutrition Inc.
According to the AVDS, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age three, often indicated by bad breath, a change in eating or chewing habits, pawing at the face and mouth and depression.
Stop in during the month of February and take 10% off all dental products until Valentine’s Day. Skip the brushing all together and take $2.00 off Petz Life Oral Care Spray for the entire month of February!
We carry a wide selection of products to choose from including: toothbrushes, toothpaste, gels, powders, sprays, treats and products that can be added to your pets water. Many of these products are very easy to administer to your animal—no actual brushing required! And, as always, they are all-natural.
Here at EOTL, we feel it’s important to reach out and support other local pet organizations. We would like to share with you a new service for pets in Mukwonago—a pet food pantry.
Please visit the Mukwonago Chief Living Lake Country for the full story and details.
In today’s difficult economy, many families are struggling to make ends meet and often turn to local food pantries for support. But what happens when these families have household pets that need to be taken care of? Tracy Harris of Mukwonago has founded Barney’s Blessings Pet Food Pantry so family pets will not be forgotten.
Although not a part of the Mukwonago Food Pantry, Harris is working alongside the pantry and has been given permission from pantry board members to use their parking lot to accept donations from 10 a.m. to noon Saturdays.
Thanks for supporting your local businesses and organizations!
