Why should groomers be concerned with pets’ oral health?
As a groomer your relationship with pets is unique. You see them more frequently than the vet does, which gives you the opportunity to positively impact their overall health. By taking just a few extra minutes to check the pet’s breath and examine their teeth and gums as outlined in the PlaqClnz ALERT exam, you can greatly impact the future health of every pet you serve.
Pet bad breath is often overlooked as a first sign of pet health problems.
At any one time, 80% of all dogs and 70% of all cats show signs of dental and oral health diseases. Regular dental care can add as much as five years to a pet’s life.(AVDS)
Groomers are one of the most important people in a pets’ life — and a partner in protecting their health. By taking a few minutes during your sessions to note the pets’ breath and to examine the teeth and gums, groomers can greatly impact the future health of each treasured dog and cat they serve. As a responsible, professional groomer, you are on the front lines for alerting your pet guardians of any potential health problems of their beloved pets.
“As a professional groomer I only want the best for my clients. I tested PlaqClnz products for a month on my own dogs before offering it to my clients. I was amazed! Even if it didn't remove the plaque (which it does) the first thing I noticed was my mini poodle's breath was so much improved that alone was worth the $20! Even my husband noticed!”
