Dental Care for Your Pet

Contrary to popular opinion, dogs and cats greatly benefit from proper dental care.  They are just as prone to cavities, gingivitis, and dental disease as humans.  Dental disease is believed to be a major link to common diseases of other organs, such as kidney, liver, and heart disease, due to the excellent blood supply in the mouth.  Bacteria can be easily carried from diseased teeth to other organs though the blood.  To better ensure long term dental health for your cat or dog, you can provide at home care such as special treats and chews to provide cleaning and weekly brushings, get yearly dental check ups from the veterinarian, and have occasional proffesional cleanings.
