An often-overlooked aspect of pets’ health: dental hygiene

Each month, Houston Matters delves into the world of our four-legged friends, responding to your inquiries about the well-being and nourishment of your canine and feline companions. Joining us is veterinarian Dr. Lori Teller from the Meyerland Animal Clinic and Texas A&M University.

In this month’s discussion, Dr. Teller imparts valuable insights on maintaining optimal dental hygiene for your pets, coinciding with the upcoming National Pet Dental Health Care month in February.

In the audio segment above, she engages in a conversation with Houston Matters host Craig Cohen, covering topics such as specialized toothpaste for pets, the reasons why using human toothpaste on dogs or cats is discouraged, and the questionable advantages of ‘flossing bones.’

Additionally, the dialogue addresses queries from Houstonians, including concerns about medicating an excitable dog and the potential hazards of rawhide. Dogs, cats, and allergies are also part of the discussion.

We invite you to share your questions for Dr. Teller anytime by emailing us at Tune in to our informative sessions with her, typically scheduled for the third Monday of each month. Click to listen to the talk.
