Why is dental health so important?
Our pets will often show few obvious signs of dental disease. In most cases dental disease develops slowly and so some pets are able to adjust to the changes in their mouth. However this can lead to them suffering in silence. Dental disease affects approximately 85% of dogs and cats over 1 year of age. Poor dental health can lead to disease in other areas of the body such as the heart, liver, and kidneys. Improved oral health care will reduce the discomfort and medical problems that accompany dental disease.
