Medical Alert: DENTAL DISEASE: More Than Just BAD Breath??

Tartar is harmful to your pet in two ways. First, it serves as a place where bacteria can reside and multiply in the mouth. There is substantial scientific evidence that bacteria from tartar are absorbed into the blood stream and deposited in various organs. Heart and kidney disease often result. Second, tartar builds up along the gum line. As the tartar enlarges, it pushes the gums away from the roots of the teeth. Eventually, the teeth will loosen and fall out. Many dogs and cats do not express the pain caused by this tooth loss.

Dental procedures are noninvasive procedures that may lengthen and improve your pet’s life. Don’t assume that your pet’s teeth are normal. Check those back ones too! Come in for a FREE DENTAL EXAMINATION in January and February to assess your pet’s oral health.

If you have anymore questions or concerns please feel free to drop by the clinic or give us a call!
