Dental care is an important part of your pet’s overall health. You should have your pet’s teeth and gums thoroughly checked by a veterinarian at least once a year because dental issues can either cause or be caused by a wide range of other serious health problems.
Periodontal disease is the most common dental condition in both dogs and cats. Periodontal disease begins with plaque that hardens into tartar, which above the gumline can typically be easily removed. However, plaque and tartar below the gumline often opens the door to infection or damage to the jawbone.
By the age of three, your pet will most likely have some early evidence of the disease, which typically continues to worsen with age if regular preventive measures aren’t taken. Other health problems often associated with periodontal disease include liver, kidney and heart muscle changes and abnormalities. That’s why early detection and treatment are critical.
Have your pet checked out at PETSinc. at least once a year, or more frequently if you observe signs of a problem including bad breath, teeth that are covered in tartar or otherwise discolored, pain or bleeding in or around the mouth, or broken or loose teeth.
