Dog and cat owners can make a big difference in the longevity and quality of life of their pets with daily dental care, an annual dental exam and professional scaling and polishing.
Dogs and cats suffer from many of the same oral diseases that humans do, which, left untreated, can cause tooth loss and make your pet very sick. Bacteria may enter the bloodstream and could subsequently damage their kidneys and/or heart leading to potential organ failure. Caring for your pet's teeth and gums is vital to the health of your pet. Control of the plaque and tartar are the keys to success.
Periodontal disease is the number one diagnosed condition in companion animals. Periodontal disease is much easier to prevent than to treat. Even mild gingivitis can potentially lead to irreversible damage and the possibility of future extractions if left untreated.
Daily oral home care and periodic professional oral hygiene visits are the best ways to keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy. Professional oral hygiene visits should be started early in a pet’s life before advanced dental disease occurs. Just like you, dogs and cats need their teeth cleaned frequently throughout their lives to help prevent disease.
