According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have oral disease by the age of 3, and it is the most frequently diagnosed health problem in pets. Some indications of oral disease can include bad breath, tartar buildup, red and swollen gums, changes in eating or chewing habits, pawing at the face and generalized depression/lethargy. It is important to have your pet’s dental health regularly checked as some dental diseases can affect other organs in the body: bacteria in the mouth can get into the blood stream and may cause serious kidney infections, liver disease, and heart valve disease. The best way to prevent this is through regular dental care.
