Proper dental health care is as important for pets as it is for people. Could you imagine what would happen if we decided never to brush our teeth again – what a smelly mess! Unable to brush and floss their own teeth, pets have to rely on their owners, and veterinarians, to provide the care they need. Oral health care for our pets is very important as dental disease is actually the most common disease in dogs and cats. Over 70% of all pets past the age of 3 have some form of periodontal or dental disease. Since is is a chronic slow onset condition, most pets will show few outward signs of dental disease therefore it is up to pet owners, and their veterinarian, to uncover this hidden and often painful condition.
