Half of the canine population in the United States has measurable periodontal disease and 80% or more are affected by age 6, making it perhaps the most common disease of dogs. Dental health is essential for a healthy pet.
Cats and dogs need proper dental care in order to enjoy the longest, healthiest lives possible. Caring for your pet’s oral health can make a big difference in your pet’s quality of life, especially as he or she gets older. Most cats and dogs need their teeth cleaned professionally for the first time somewhere between two and five years of age. After that, they may need a dental cleaning every year or two. Some pets accumulate tartar more rapidly than others and need more frequent cleanings. If your pet has bad breath, it is probably a sign that he or she needs an oral exam and a dental cleaning.
