After your pet finishes a
meal, tiny food particles
combine with bacteria to form plaque. Plaque, if not removed, eventually hardens
into calculus or tartar, and can ultimately lead to periodontal disease. If left
untreated, periodontal disease is the single greatest cause of health problems
in pets. Regular veterinary check-ups and professional “dental cleanings” are an
important first defense in controlling and preventing periodontal disease.
Routine home dental care is equally important in helping keep your pet and its
teeth healthy. Simply brushing food debris and plaque from the teeth and gumline
can greatly reduce the chance of tartar build-up, periodontal disease, and bad
your pet depends on you and your veterinarian for all its health care. Ask your
veterinarian about the many different home oral care options available to you.
