Dental disease is one of the most common health issues among dogs and cats in the United States. The American Veterinary Dental Society estimates that four out of five pets over the age of three are suffering from some type of dental issue, like periodontal disease. If left untreated, dental diseases cause other health issues and complications, such as pain, tooth loss and organ damage. Because our pets can’t tell us when something is wrong, it’s important for pet parents to know the warning signs of dental disease. Some of the major symptoms of dental disease include:
Proactive dental care, including regular teeth brushing and providing dental-friendly treats, along with routine professional cleanings help prevent tarter buildup that leads to gingivitis and oral infection. If left untreated, bacteria under the pet’s gum line can make their way into the bloodstream and damage internal organs, like the liver, heart, lungs and kidneys, shortening the pet’s lifespan by up to 25%. Routine dental care is a simple, effective way to keep your pet happy and healthy!
