Importance of Dental Care

A fully-grown dog has 42 teeth while a fully-grown cat has 30. Sometimes, baby teeth need to be extracted. If these baby teeth aren’t extracted, it can lead to problems with gum disease and tartar buildup.

If you take quality care of your pet’s teeth, you will have fewer problems down the road with their overall health. You should brush your pet’s teeth daily, however, some pets can be difficult, which we understand and we can discuss a variety of other options to keep your pet’s teeth the best they can be.

Statistics show that four out of five dogs over the age of three will develop some form of periodontal disease which is normally caused by plaque buildup so it is very important for them to have regular dental checkups and cleanings.

Signs Your Pet May Be Experiencing Dental Complications

Pets are good at hiding their pain, so you may not know when they are suffering from a major dental issue until is too late. Regular checkups will keep you and your pet on top of the situation so issues can be caught early if they develop. Your dog or cat’s teeth can wear out which causes them a lot of pain so it is imperative they undergo regular dental checkups. To achieve optimum health for your cat or dog, regular dental care should be a top priority.
