Did you know according to the American Veterinary Dental Society 80% of dogs and 70% of cats by age 3 show signs of periodontal disease? This disease can cause heart and lung problems and attacks the gums. Too often we assume our pets’ teeth are spic and span, but plaque has a funny way of sticking around, especially if you love to give your best friend some yummy treats. However, without proper dental care pets’ gums can become red and swollen. Unfortunately, our furry friends may not be able to properly communicate gum or tooth pain. So be sure to remain attentive of your pet’s dental hygiene and have them come in for a routine dental check up at least once a year.
