Healthy Teeth for You and Your Pet!


Binky in "Healthy Teeth for You and Your Pet!"

Comic description: A boy named Allergy takes his dog Sport to the vet. The vet tells Allergy that he is always happy to help in an emergency. However, there are some things that Allergy can do to make sure Sport's teeth stay healthy. This includes having Sport eat a balanced diet, swab his teeth regularly, get his teeth cleaned by the vet, and make sure he exercises. These same rules can help Allergy take care of his own teeth too! Binky says: "That's good advice, kids. Good teeth and good health aid each other. Help yourself and your pet to stay healthy!".
