Something to Chew On
Here are some things to think about while you’re brushing your teeth:
- More than 8 out of 10 dogs and 7 out of 10 cats show signs of poor dental health by the age of three.
- Dental problems in pets – as in people – can lead to pain, tooth loss, periodontal disease, and increased bacteria in the bloodstream.
- Pets’ oral disease invariably progresses with time, as does people’s, and can result in damage to internal organs, including the heart, liver and kidneys.
Many owners are not aware of the importance of their pets’ dental health. That’s why February has been designated Pet Dental Health Month, and why we urge you to find out more about it.
Talk with us about your pet’s dental health. We can help prevent and manage pets’ oral problems before they become serious – or even life-threatening. Call today or go to your Pet Portal® to request an appointment for your pet’s dental check-up.
|To learn more about dental health and hygiene for your pet, please visit your Pet Portal and view the article entitled “Periodontal Disease and Your Pet” in the Care Guides section.
