According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, over 70% of dogs and cats show signs of oral disease by the age of 3 and 85% of adult pets have some form of periodontal disease. Overlooking dental care can lead to serious health risks and veterinary expenses down the road.
Pet dental health starts at home though and some of the things you can do to help are:
- Brush your pet’s teeth on at least a weekly basis with toothpaste that is specially formulated for dog or cat use.
- Give your pet food that is designed to help reduce the buildup of plaque and tartar. We recommend and offer Royal Canin premium foods but there are many different brands available.
