Imagine what your mouth would feel like if you never brushed your teeth or went to the dentist. For many dogs and cats, this is a painful reality. More than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have dental disease by the age of 3. Dental (or periodontal) disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem in pets.
Signs of dental disease include:
- Bad breath (Halitosis)
- Yellow or brown staining (tartar) on the teeth
- Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
- Excessive drooling
- Changes in chewing habits
- Off their food
- Loose teeth
We recommend that you have your pet’s dental health examined at least once a year, and we offer this as a Complimentary Service!
Bacteria and food debris accumulate around the teeth and, if left unchecked, will lead to deterioration of the soft tissue and bone surrounding the teeth. This decay can result in irreversible periodontal disease, tooth loss, and expensive dental surgery.
Dental disease can also affect other organs in the body: Bacteria in the mouth can get into the bloodstream and cause serious infections in the kidneys, liver, lungs, and heart. If these problems aren’t caught and treated quickly enough, they can result in death.
