February is National Pet Dental Health Month
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 75% of dogs and cats show signs of periodontal (dental) disease by the age of three. Left untreated, dental disease can cause your pet pain and eventually lead to tooth loss, kidney damage, heart disease and many other complications. Dental disease can lurk beneath the gums, not really visible to the pet owner.
Signs of Dental Disease:
Tooth loss Subdued behavior
Bad breath Yellow crust on teeth
Bleeding gums Swallowing food whole
Dropping food out of mouth Change of chewing or eating
Fortunately, this threat to your pet’s health can be avoided with simple preventive measures like regular dental cleanings and check ups. If you think that your pet has dental disease or having issues with their mouth; please contact our office to set up an appointment.
