Periodontal disease is the most common dental condition in dogs and cats, and most pets are showing symptoms of it by the age of three—symptoms that will only worsen over time. While the idea of dental care for pets may seem unimportant, it’s actually a crucial part of their overall care! Dental disease affects more than your pet’s mouth; it profoundly affects their overall health and quality of life. When tartar and plaque are allowed to accumulate in your pet’s mouth, it leads to pain, infection, tooth decay, and tooth loss. If periodontal disease is left unchecked, it allows harmful bacteria to spread throughout your pet’s system. Kidney, liver, and heart disease in pets can all stem from an underlying dental infection. It really is about so much more than fresh breath!
