Can you imagine what your teeth would look like if you never brushed them? It’s no different for cats and dogs, though many pet owners don’t pay very much attention to their pet’s dental health.

Why Your Pet Needs Dental Care

Bad breath and dirty teeth are unappealing, but many pet owners aren’t aware that these may be indicators of gum disease that can spread to the kidney, heart, and liver.

The gums are a boundary to the bloodstream, so unless you are regularly providing dental care for your pet, you are neglecting an important factor in their overall health and putting them at a higher risk for serious illness.
