AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When it comes to preventive care, pet owners know that a healthy diet, regular exercise and up-to-date vaccinations support their pet's health. February is National Pet Dental Health Month, which serves as a reminder that regular maintenance of a pet's teeth and gums is equally important when it comes to their health. Dental health problems are one of the most common issues veterinarians find in pets and can lead to serious, life-threatening issues when left untreated. Visiting your veterinarian to establish a comprehensive dental health plan is the first step toward promoting good dental health for your pet.
"Providing regular oral homecare and regular visits to your family veterinarian or dental specialist will give your pets a longer, healthier and happier life," said Debra Nossaman, DVM, DAVDC, a board-certified veterinary dentist and Texas Veterinary Medical Association member who owns Dallas Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery in Southlake, Texas.
An unhealthy mouth impacts the rest of a pet's body. Plaque, a sticky substance that builds up in the mouth, contains bacteria that can lead to periodontal disease, which can cause infections and inflammation in the heart valves, liver, kidneys and other organs. Periodontal disease can be prevented by yearly cleanings performed by veterinary professionals that are supplemented by effective in-home dental care.
Talk to your veterinarian for recommendations on how to ensure you're maintaining your pet's dental health at home in between professional cleanings. Some measures that may be suggested include teeth-brushing, dental chews, oral solutions and water additives.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
