Have you ever wondered whether oral hygiene is important for your pet? Yes most definitely it is!
Lack of oral hygiene in dogs and cats can lead to excess tartar, swellings in the mouth, and major wear and tear of the teeth from chewing objects. It can also cause Periodontal disease and the bacteria that comes from the mouth can spread through the body and pass through the bloodstream causing secondary infections such as liver, heart, kidney, and joint disease.
What is Periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease affects more than 80% of pet cats and dogs. It is one of the most common diseases to affect our pets. Periodontal disease is caused by plaque bacteria that build up on the teeth and can form hardened deposits called calculus or tartar which can lead up to tooth decay and infections.
In order to prevent this, you must always make sure to consistently clean your pet’s teeth.
