By age 3, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some kind of dental disease. Poor oral hygiene doesn't just cause bad breath, it can lead to tooth loss, painful abscesses, difficulty eating, and other serious health concerns involving vital organs!
Have your pet's teeth checked sooner than later if you observe any of the following problems:
Once your pet’s teeth are clean, routine dental care will maintain oral health and minimize the need for professional dental cleanings. Pets should IDEALLY have their teeth brushed daily using pet-safe toothpaste.

No matter what you choose, be consistent and see your veterinarian regularly for check ups. Remember early diagnosis and treatment are the best defense against serious dental disease!
