Why is dental care so important?

You may have heard that 80% of dogs have periodontal disease by the age of two. But what does that mean and why does it matter?

What is it?

Pet MD states that periodontal disease is an inflammation of some or all of a tooth’s deep supporting structures.

Why should you strive to keep your pet's mouth healthy?

  1. Dental disease is smelly for you, and painful for your pet.
  2. Bacteria under the gums can go directly to the heart, kidneys, and liver.
  3. As always, prevention is key to long and healthy life.
