and the same thing applies for our pets as well!
The American Veterinary Dental Society reports that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age three. Dental disease doesn’t affect just your pet’s teeth and gums, it can also lead to more serious health problems affecting your pet’s heart, lungs and kidneys. Dental disease and tooth loss is totally preventable in many cases and controllable with regular, annual dental cleanings and daily home care.
Dental disease is a very common ailment in pets. Unfortunately it is diagnosed frequently from lack of proper oral care. Your pet’s diet can help keep your pet healthy and free of dental disease, but it is not enough. The best way is to regularly brush your pet’s teeth and get a dental cleaning at least yearly at the pet hospital. If your pet won’t let you brush, there are certain treats or chewies that are good to give and produced specifically for dental health (and it is better than nothing at all)!
A sign of possible dental disease is bad breath. This is one that we can all notice and recognize. (And something can be done about it!)
