Tips to improve your pet's dental health
Tartar buildup: The second stage of dental disease is tartar buildup.
Dental disease stages: Dental disease can be divided into four major stages.
It starts early in life: Many dogs and cats get dental issues by the age of three.
Dental disease can affect overall health: Bacteria get trapped beneath the gum line and can enter the bloodstream.
How does dental disease develop: Dental disease occurs when plaque, tartar, and bacteria build up in your pet’s mouth.
Other signs: Excessive drooling, loss of appetite, abnormal chewing, and, of course.
Oral pain: If your pet shows signs of pain in the mouth, either to the touch, while eating.
Tooth loss: If your pet loses a tooth or more, then it’s likely that the structures that support the teeth allowed for this to happen.
Bad breath: Bad breath is never a good sign. Many of us are familiar with “dog breath,” but this is not actually normal.
The importance of dental health: Good dental health is important not only for your pet’s mouth, but for their overall health.
