Professional dental care is essential for the health and longevity. Disease in the mouth is a portal for infection and inflammation in the rest of the body. Heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease and bone infections are frequently traced back to infections in the oral cavity. Dental disease is painful but our pets are unable to express it in ways that are easy for owners to identify. They suffer in silence, but after the condition is resolved owners tell us over and over how much happier their furry family members are.
The American Veterinary Dental Society reports that 80% of the pets in this country are suffering from dental disease. That means eight out of every ten patients we see in a day have a dental condition which needs to be addressed. That is a staggering number of animals!
