Professional Pet Dental Care
Your pet’s dental health is an important factor when it comes to their general well-being. Oral health and disease directly affect your pet’s heart and kidneys because the mouth is the largest and easiest gateway for blood-borne bacterial infections to enter the body. The AVMA reports that 80% of pets have a significant dental disease by the age of three. Dental health is so much more than just bad breath. Is your pet part of the other 20%?
Symptoms of Dental Disease
- Bad breath
- Red inflamed gums
- Rubbing or pawing at the face
- Abnormal or bloody discharge from the mouth or nose
- Swelling below the eye
- Tartar or plaque formation
- Changes in eating habits
