WE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT PROPER DENTAL CARE CAN BE FOR YOUR PET
ANIMALS OVER 5 YEARS OF AGE ARE THE MOST LIKELY TO NEED A DENTALS BECAUSE OVER TIME TARTER BUILDS UP AND CAN LEAD TO INFECTION.
Why does my dog need a dental?
Over 70% of all dogs and cats over five years of age suffer from periodontal disease, which means that they have loss of the supporting structures of the teeth. In most cases, this process is uncomfortable and it will eventually lead to problems such as loose teeth, bacteria in the blood stream, and damage to the kidneys, heart and liver. The majority of dogs and cats seen over the age of 5 years could have one or more painful teeth in their mouth.
How often will my dog need their teeth cleaned?
In general, most pets need their teeth cleaned from every 6 months to every four years. The best advice is to have a veterinarian knowledgeable about dental care examine your pet and give you his/her recommendation.
I feed dry food does my pet still need a dental?
Anything that increases abrasive action in the mouth is of some benefit, but feeding dry food exclusively has a minimal effect in preventing dental problems. Imagine if you only ate dry food, but never brushed your teeth or had your teeth cleaned. Most people would agree that you would still develop problems. Certain dry foods are formulated to have a significant effect on the prevention of dental problems. Prescription diet t/d for the pet that needs a little extra dental care.
