Most pet owners do not realize how important dental care is for their pets!
Dental disease causes a lot of problems. It is much worse than bad breath and gross looking teeth! It causes heart disease, liver problems, and kidney disease.
Dental disease is a real problem! It affects around 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years old. Because of this, it is the most common disease affecting pets in our area.
Even though dental disease is a big problem, most pet owners don’t really understand the importance of taking care of their pet’s teeth. Good dental hygiene starts at home with brushing and dental chews! Routine veterinary visits will also ensure that your pet’s teeth remain healthy, though a professional cleaning might get recommended. We can reach areas where you are unable to reach at home with a toothbrush.
Contact us today if you are worried about your pet’s dental health! We would be happy to take a peek at your pet’s teeth to assess whether you just need to start brushing or if a professional cleaning is necessary.
