Each February, the veterinary industry highlights Pet Dental Health by raising awareness of the importance of proper dental hygiene for your pets. Contact us today to book your COMPLIMENTARY DENTAL EVALUATION!
Key Points regarding Dental Health in Pets:
It's not just about the teeth -- There is plenty of documentation not only in the veterinary field but in human dentistry proving that infection within the mouth will spread to other organs in the body, particularly the liver, kidneys and heart.
Periodontal Disease is more common than you think -- Periodontal disease which affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth are present in 85% of all patients older than 4 years of age!
Your pet will live longer -- Cleaning your pets teeth and treating dental conditions can result in your pet living 2-4 years longer!
Dental disease is uncomfortable -- Remember, dogs and cats dog not show pain the same way we do (Pain Management). Very rarely, will an animal stop eating because of oral pain. What we do see is that after a dental cleaning/treatment, the pet may become more energetic and playful as the dental cleaning has removed all the harmful bacteria from the mouth and limiting its spread throughout the body.
As Kingsdale Animal Hospital supports February’s Pet Dental Health Month, there’s no better time than now to have your pet’s teeth and health restored!
