The Importance of Pet Dental Care

Better quality of life? Decreased risk of other healthcomplications? Longer life expectancy?

Yes, your pet's dental health is that important.

Problems with your pet's teeth—including tartar build-up, toothinfections, broken teeth, periodontal disease, and oral cysts—can create a lotof problems for your animal's overall well-being. For instance,bacteria can easily leach into your pet's bloodstream via infected gums orteeth and lead to widespread infections elsewhere in its body.

Remember, too, that oral health issues can be painful and makeit difficult for your pet to chew and swallow her food! Research evenshows that animals with good oral health tend to live longer...by as much asthree to five years!
