Dental Discussions with Dr. Patrick Mahaney

It always helps us gain a little perspective when we spend a few minutes talking to Dr. Mahaney about pet dental topics. It feels like a year goes by and we might have ignored our pets teeth entirely, but it’s a good idea to stop for a few minutes and give it some thought. Much easier to think about it pro-actively than wait until it’s a headache.

In this podcast we learn:

  • About preventing dental disease.
  • If brushing your pet’s teeth is helpful.
  • If certain pet foods or chews are better for your pet’s teeth.
  • What your vet really wants you to know about pet dental care.



More from Dr. Mahaney next month as we talk Spring and seasonal pet issues. Feel free to post your questions for our team in the comments.
