Dental disease is the most common health issue among pets across the country…
Did you know?
Periodontal disease is the most common dental problem among pets and affects an overwhelming majority of them before the age of three. Because periodontal disease is irreversible, preventative care is key.
Once periodontal disease infects the gums, bacteria can easily filter into the bloodstream and travel to various organs in the body, putting your pet at risk of developing health problems far beyond the scope of the mouth. Some common general health problems that may result from poor oral hygiene include:
- Blood infections (sepsis)
- Bone infections (osteomyelitis)
- Diabetes mellitus
- Heart disease
- Heart valve infections
- High blood pressure
- Kidney problems
- Liver abscesses
That’s why it’s important to keep your pet’s grill gleaming with regular dental cleanings. If you love puppy slobber and kitten kisses, but you notice that your furry friend’s breath is less than fresh, give us a call! We’d love to see them for a dental consultation and/or cleaning.
