It is February and while many thoughts in the dental industry may turn to either Valentine's Day (and all of those sweets that come with it) or Chicago Midwinter, it is also National Pet Dental Health Month. Sponsored every year by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), National Pet Dental Health Month is a time for pet owners to remember that the oral-systemic link doesn't solely apply to humans. It is a reminder that periodontal health is important for their beloved animals as well.
As the AVMA says on their site, "Don't turn your nose to your pet's bad breath! That odor might signify a serious health risk. Dental health is a critical part of your pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems."
With that in mind, we here at DrBicuspid.com thought this would be a perfect time to have our readers show us their amazing pets and why they bring a smile to our readers' faces. After all, anything that makes us smile is worth sharing, right?
We are looking for the pet that makes DrBicuspid.com readers smile the most. In fact, we will vote at the end of February (beginning on Monday, February 26) for the pet posted on this page that makes us smile the most. After the vote concludes at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern) on February 29, the winning pet will get a gift card as well as a donation made in its name to the winner's local animal shelter, helping other pets live a better life.
How does your pet find its way to this page? Follow DrBicuspid on social media (especially Instagram), tag DrBicuspid in a picture or video of your pet, and explain why he or she brings you so much joy using the hashtag #PetsWhoMakeUsSmile to catch our attention. We will flow the pet pics onto this page, and you can scroll down to see the latest.
The link to vote for your favorite will go live on February 26 on this page, so keep checking back and keep scrolling!
