Pets with proper dental hygiene live longer, healthier lives than those who develop peridontal disease. Our pets, just like ourselves, develop plaque daily. We brush the plaque off our teeth daily, but in our pets, that plaque accumulates to become a calcified wall of bacteria on their teeth, called tartar. This leads to gingivitis, peridontal disease, and loose or missing teeth. This can be painful and more importantly, lead to systemic diseases!
We encourgage prophylactic dental cleanings (just like in people) to prevent significant dental disease.
Does your pet have bad breath? This is the most common sign that your pet may need dental attention. Call us today to schedule a dental procedure or a dental exam.
