Dental Care

Why is dental health so important? Approximately 80% of dogs and cats over the age of three suffer from dental disease which becomes more severe over time.

Dental disease starts with the formation of plaque – a build-up of food particles, saliva and bacteria – on the tooth surface which calcifies into tartar. This leads to the inflammation of the gums and tooth decay which is painful and distressing for your pet. Dental disease can also lead to more serious illnesses related to the heart, liver and kidneys.

Some breeds can develop dental disease at a very early age. If left untreated, it can become a major issue for pets and owners. Checking your pet’s teeth is an important part of their annual health check.
