Important Dental Care Facts:
Dental care for dogs and cats is one of the most commonly overlooked areas of pet health care. In fact, a recent AAHA study showed that:
- Dental disease is the most common disease of all dogs and cats.
- Approximately two-thirds of pet owners do not provide the dental care that is recommended as essential by veterinarians.
- That 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by age three years. Dental disease does not just affect the mouth. It can lead to more serious health problems including heart, lung and kidney disease, which makes it all the more important that you provide your pet’s with proper dental care right from the start.
