Does your pet have bad breath? That smell could signify an underlying problem. Dental health is a critical part of your pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems.
Some causes of pet dental health issues include:
- Broken teeth and roots
- Periodontal disease
- Infected teeth or Abscesses
- Tumors or Cysts in the Mouth
- Malocclusion or Misalignment of the teeth and bite
- Broken/Fractured Jaw
- Palate Defects
Early detection and treatment are key not only for your pet’s dental health but also for your pet’s overall health. Other health problems associated with periodontal disease include kidney, liver and heart muscle changes.
Ways to maintain your pet’s dental health include:
- Frequent Brushing
- Maintaining A Healthy Diet
- Established Vet Visits
- Using Water Additives
- Noting Problems Early
Always check with your Vet before starting any new foods or additives. Good dental care means a happy pet!
