Why Pet Dentistry Matters

Dental care is not just about ensuring a sparkling smile for your pet; it’s about safeguarding their overall health. Untreated dental issues can lead to serious health problems affecting vital organs like the heart, liver, and kidneys. In fact, dental disease is one of the most common health issues among pets, with 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years old experiencing some form of dental disease.

Signs Your Pet Needs Dental Care

Identifying when your pet requires dental care is crucial for their overall health and well-being. Keep a close eye on any signs that may indicate dental issues. Persistent bad breath could be a red flag, as it often signifies the presence of dental disease.

Additionally, be vigilant for visible tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth, which appear as yellow or brown deposits. If you notice your pet experiencing difficulty while eating or displaying excessive drooling, it could indicate underlying dental pain or discomfort. Furthermore, be mindful of any instances of bleeding gums, as this could be a symptom of gum disease. Regular observation of these signs will help you determine when it’s time to schedule a visit to the pet dentist.
