Good oral health is more than just a pretty smile. Poor dental hygiene can put both your pet’s health and your pocketbook at risk. “Dog breath” can be a sign of untreated dental conditions like gingivitis or an abscessed tooth. Most pet dental disease occurs below the gums, where you can’t see it and your pets cannot always tell you if something hurts! Because of that, your pet should have a dental exam at least once a year. Routine cleanings can help prevent periodontal disease and save you money in the long run! More importantly, a complete oral examination can detect hidden health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can damage internal organs, including the heart, liver, and kidneys.
