Your pet’s oral care is important.
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. In fact, most pet parents aren’t aware there is an issue with their pet’s dental health until there are already symptoms that need attention. Bad oral health can have an effect on more than just your pet’s mouth; if not maintained properly, bad oral health can lead to infections that can spread through the bloodstream to affect major organs such as your pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart.
It starts with at-home care.
Starting when your pet is young (if possible), make sure to get them into a routine of getting their teeth brushed every day. The key is to let them get used to it when they’re young, so it’s not a stressful act as they get older. Be sure to speak with our team about chews, food, and supplements that can help with your pet’s oral health. Not sure if your pet has signs of gum disease?
Watch for these symptoms:
- Brown/yellow teeth
- Bad breath
- Abnormal drooling
- Red, swollen, and/or bleeding gums
- Loose/ broken teeth
- Swelling around the face/muzzle
- Lack of interest in chew toys
- Dropping food while eating
