Dental and oral health care in pets is just as important as dental and oral health care in humans, and maintaining good dental health will prevent your animals from unnecessary pain and discomfort.
Plaque can lead to gingivitis and progressive harmful infections of soft tissue and bones that support the teeth, so it’s essential to get your animal periodically checked. Pets also use their teeth to explore the world, play with other animals and toys and often to gnaw on hard bones or treats. Because of this, excessive wearing of teeth and broken teeth are not uncommon.
Cats and dogs need dental and oral health care just as much as we do, and a healthy mouth will result in a happy pet.
