Imagine that you didn’t brush your teeth for a month, or a year. Think about how that would feel (and smell!), and how much decay and infection would have happened in that time. Now look in your pet’s mouth.
- Is there brown buildup around the teeth or along the gum line?
- Are the gums red, swollen, or bleeding?
- Are there gaps where teeth are missing?
- Does your pet’s breath smell?
- Is your cat or dog over two years old and has never had a dental exam?
If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, then your pet likely has significant dental health issues.
Dental disease is the most important health issue facing your cat or dog. An astounding 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3. Oral health issues often go unnoticed until the pet is in significant discomfort and there is permanent damage to the teeth and gums. In addition, dental disease can lead to other health issues, such as heart liver or kidney disease.
