Dental disease — it’s about so much more than just bad breath!
Actually, dental disease isn’t just something that affects your pet’s mouth. It can also have negative health effects on the rest of the body, including the heart, liver, and kidneys.
That’s because, when your pet’s gums get inflamed and infected due to dental disease, bacteria can migrate into the bloodstream and spread to other parts of the body.
Dental disease is one of the most common medical conditions in pets — in fact, at least 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some form of dental disease by the time they’re 3 years old.
But don’t worry — here at Angel Animal Hospital, we’re here to help you take care of your pet’s total health… and that includes their teeth!
