Dental health is more important than most people realize. Dental disease can lead to many health problems, including heart, liver, and kidney disease, as bacteria from the teeth travel through the bloodstream. Even more alarming is how many pets are affected by the disease. It is thought that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age have some form of dental disease.
Good dental health starts at home. Owners should brush their pets’ teeth, as it is the best way to help prevent dental disease. Dental chews and regular examinations by your pet’s veterinarian are also helpful.
