PETS HAVE TEETH TOO!
Imagine how your teeth would look and feel if you didn’t brush them daily. The same applies to your pet's teeth. Unless you are regularly providing some form of dental care, you are neglecting an important factor in the overall health of your pet.
Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common conditions seen by veterinarians today. The problem begins when plaque and tartar are allowed to build up on your pet's teeth. Plaque harbors bacteria which can infect gum tissue and the roots of teeth resulting in disease and tooth loss. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the diseased gum tissue and may contribute to heart, liver and kidney disease.
Signs and Symptoms of Poor Oral Health:
• Persistent bad breath
• Sensitivity around the mouth
• Pawing at the mouth
• Loss of appetite
• Plaque (often not visible unless stained)
• Bleeding, inflamed or receded gums
• Tartar (Creamy-brown, hard material)
• Loose or missing teeth
• Difficulty eating and chewing food
