Animals, just like people, need routine dental care. Imagine what your teeth would look and feel liked if you NEVER brushed them. Dental care is not just a cosmetic endeavor. Although teeth brushing and dental cleanings make the teeth look nice, the main benefit is in preventing serous health problems. This is why routine dental care is the #1 preventative service that you can do to help extend your pet's life expectancy.
- Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed condition in pets.
- It is estimated that 85% of dogs and cats have some form of dental disease that can cause bad breath, tooth loss, discomfort, and infection.
- If left untreated, oral disease can lead to chronic infections and have serious consequences. Bacteria can spread to major organs and will compromise your pet's health.
- Daily dental care can protect your pet's teeth and overall health.
