Good dental care is as important for your pet as it is for you. Proper dental care not only prevents bad breath and periodontal disease but also prevents infection spreading through the bloodstream to your pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart.
It’s possible to add years to your pet’s life with proper dental care. Dental hygiene can also increase your pet’s health, vitality, and wellbeing. Veterinary dental care will help ensure your pet leads the best life possible.
However, if left untreated, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet’s health before symptoms are noticeable. For example, oral bacteria that enter the bloodstream can damage your pet’s kidneys, heart or liver. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop tooth and gum disease by the age of three years.
Veterinary dental care is an important piece of your dog or cat’s preventive health care program. It will not only prevent dental and systemic disease but also help minimize the lifetime cost of care for your pet.
