Have you happened to look at your pet’s teeth recently?
Dental tartar and gingivitis can cause our pets to have odorous breath and are precursors to serious health conditions like periodontal disease. Our pets are subject to the same dental diseases as humans, however many do not have their teeth brushed or maintained on a regular basis. Did you know that 85% of dogs over the age of 4 and 72% of cats over the age of 5 show signs of periodontal disease?
