Did you know you pet teeth play an important roll in their overall health?
COEUR d’ALENE, Idaho — Your pet’s bad breath may be considerably more serious than you think — it may actually be whittling years off his life.
Neglecting your pet’s oral health can cause gingivitis, periodontal disease and loss of teeth. Plaque and tartar buildup can affect the tissue and structure supporting the teeth. If left untreated, bacteria can enter the bloodstream and may infect the heart, liver, and kidneys, shortening your pet’s life unnecessarily by up to five years.
February is National Pet Dental Health Month, and a good time to focus on good periodontal health care for your pet. After all, oral disease is the No. 1 health problem diagnosed in dogs and cats over age 3, with 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats showing signs of oral disease early in life.
