Dental health is an extremely important aspect of health care.

The health of your pet’s teeth and gums are hard to evaluate at home as most pets don’t exactly volunteer to have their mouths opened and examined! MANY pets actually have painful and diseased teeth and don’t show it. Tarter build-up and gingivitis (inflammation and infection of the gums), happen without humans being aware of it.

**Pets will continue to eat – even if they have severely diseased and painful teeth in their mouths**

Dental health is crucial to your pet’s overall state of health as bad teeth and gums are responsible for showering bacteria all over the body – infecting heart valves, kidneys, liver, and other organs via the bloodstream, this causes dissolving of the bones of the jaws by infection into the tooth socket and root.

This can also result in abscessing teeth, and pain and suffering for your pet.
