I adore my furbabies and they are both “rescues”.  A rescued dog is one of the most loving pets that one can be owned by.  Our Gung Poe Wigglebut was found wondering down a busy highway.  Fortunately for us, despite trying very hard to find his previous owner, he was never claimed, so he was welcomed into our home with opened arms. Gabe, my loyal Service Dog, was a rescue from a shelter in Kansas.  He has brought so much peace of mind to me.  I honestly cannot imagine my life without these 4 legged members of our family!

Dental health is not only important to humans, but also to dogs, so we headed on over to our local Sam’s Club and purchased a 51 count Variety Pack  of pedigree Dentastix. (LOL – dinner and shopping at Sam’s Club, is one of our favorite “date nights”.) Knowing that this purchase was good for my boys and that it would help to feed a shelter dog via #PedigreeGives,  made the purchase even more important to me.  Small breed dogs, like my Poe, are more prone to dental problems, and since Gabe goes everywhere with me, I not only want his coat to be clean and shiny – I want his teeth to be white and for him to have fresh breath. Pedigree Dentastix to the rescue (pun intended)!

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of three.  All pets should be seen by a veterinarian at least once each year, and a thorough examination of the teeth and gums should be a part of every pet checkup. Older  pet’s heart, kidneys and liver are more sensitive to the effects of the bacteria that cause dental disease, so they should be seen at least twice each year.  Early and consistent care of your pets teeth and gums, is essential for their well being.  Brushing is best, but dogs aren’t particularly cooperative unless you start when they are very very young, so products like Pedigree Dentastix are great for your pets (even if you do brush regularly)!

  • This is such a wonderful niece is working her way through school as a vet assistant, and so far we have saved 2 dogs and 2 rabbits and not only brought them back to health, we adopted them all

  • So so cute! We are totally guilty of not taking better care of our pet’s dental health. Need to step up on that one. #client

  • Wow, I agree. We have a rescue dog and she is the world in our family. Taking care of her teeth is just as important as taking care of ours.

  • what an adorable pug, my last 2 dogs Molly (beagle corgi mix) and daisy(beagle) I adopted from my local animal shelter

  • What a cool program!

  • Your story is so awesome! I have to know how you came up with the name for your little dog? A pug, right?

    • OK – here’s the story…Poe was rescued by a friend of mine. She posted on Facebook that she needed a name for him. I had just watched Kung Fu Panda (about a million times with a grandson), so I suggested the name Poe. Well, that’s the name that she and her family chose. (When they decided to move, I begged her to let me have Poe, since I had fallen head over heals for him.) Who knows what happened for us to and the “Gung” to his name, but Wigglebutt is a shoe in. He gets soooooooooooooooooooo excited, every time we go to pick him up, that he wiggles his backside to the point where we were telling him that him that he was going to wiggle his butt off. Thus, Gung Poe Wigglebutt!
