Dental health is important for your pet’s overall health and well-being. Bad dental disease can lead to pain for your pet, malodorous breath, and has been linked to heart, liver and kidney problems. While brushing your pet’s teeth and dental chews and treats can help minimize dental disease it is important to get your pet’s mouth and teeth evaluated routinely. Just as in humans that even brush their teeth twice daily, dental plaque and gingivitis can occur.
Most owners agree that they are not brushing their pet’s teeth often enough or not at all. Routine dental cleanings are needed to keep your pet’s mouth healthy. You as the owner will appreciate your pet having improved breath when you want to pass out “kisses” and your pet will usually feel much better with clean teeth.
