Gayle Anderson was live in Long Beach because February is NATIONAL PET DENTAL HEALTH MONTH!

According to, the American Veterinary Medical Association and VPI Pet Insurance, red gums, yellow teeth and stinky breath are more than just a cosmetic issue. They can lead to serious consequences for pets including infection, severe pain and even organ damage. These chronic pain issues may even be the reason for certain behavioral problems your pets display.

However, with regular oral health maintenance and check-ups, most of these problems can be avoided. Pet owners can do three things to help maintain proper pet oral hygiene:

  1. Schedule a dental check up for their pet at least once a year.
  2. Talk to their veterinarian about an at-home oral regimen, which ideally includes daily brushing of pet’s teeth.
  3. Schedule regular dental cleanings for their pet.
