Healthy teeth in dogs and cats

Why regular dental check-ups for your dog or cat are important:

  1. A pet with a healthy set of teeth has better breath!                                                                                 
  2. Dental diseases can even lead to problems with your pet's organs, such as the heart.

  3. When the dog doesn't transition from milk teeth to adult teeth, it can cause problems. Did you know that a healthy adult dog has 42 teeth, and a mature cat has 30 teeth? Before the adult teeth can grow, the milk teeth must fall out. Sometimes these teeth don't come out on their own, leading to issues such as irritated gums and tartar.                                                                                   
  4. Take good care of your pet's teeth; this can prevent health problems and save you a lot of money in the long run.                                                                                                                                   
  5. You pay daily attention to your own teeth, so why not to those of your dog? Your veterinarian can provide you with useful tips for proper dental care for your dog or cat.                                                   
  6. Did you know that 4 out of 5 dogs aged 3 or older have a dental disease? Dental diseases can be caused by the buildup of plaque, so it's important to regularly check and clean your dog's teeth as needed.                                                                                                                                            
  7. Animals that don't receive dental care can lose their teeth - this can be very painful and lead to serious health problems.                                                                                                                    
  8. Your dog or cat may not quickly show that they are in pain, except when it's very serious. This is another reason to regularly have your pet's teeth examined.                                                                   
  9. Teeth wear out! The teeth of dogs and cats naturally undergo a lot of wear and tear.
