Studies show only 10% of pet owners seek out solutions for their pet’s oral hygiene needs! What?! That means 90% of the pets out there have either the beginning stages of a life shortening disease (periodontal disease) or have advanced signs including loss of teeth, pain, infection, or worse.
As pet professionals, we have a duty to inform our clients about the importance of proper oral hygiene for their pets. While solutions including visits to the pet’s Veterinarian exist (which can be very expensive and sometimes risky) there are daily, very simple things that can be done to help the pet’s breath and oral health between cleanings. These options include brushing and NO brushing alternatives and some really cool toys that promote better oral hygiene. Of course I am a bit biased (OK, allot biased) to the NO BRUSHING NECESSARY line of Tropiclean Fresh Breath products! It really doesn’t get any easier than this!
For all of you groomers out there, if you don’t already, start offering a solution for bad breath as a grooming service and increase your earnings today! It is amazing what adding this simple $5 service can do for your bottom line and your pet client’s health.
Till next time…..
