Dental care is just as important for pets as it is for us people! Poor oral hygiene is about more than just bad breath — it can lead to serious illnesses of the heart, liver, and kidneys. Your pet’s gums are a barrier to the bloodstream, so bacteria that forms in the mouth can actually affect various other parts of your pet’s body!
Unlike humans, our pets are incapable of caring for their teeth on their own. Can you imagine what you or your children’s teeth would look like if they were never brushed? That’s essentially what is happening if your pet does not have proper dental care.
We highly recommend using home brushing kits (with tasty toothpaste flavors!) to help keep your pet’s teeth clean. You can also use dental chews, but the most effective way to ensure your pet has a healthy oral cavity is through professional dental cleanings.
