Can you imagine what your teeth would look like if you never brushed your teeth? It’s no different for cats and dogs, they would not look good! Many people think “dog breath” is normal, but it really isn’t.
Bad breath and dirty teeth are more than just unappealing; they may be a painful indicator of gum disease which can spread to the kidney, heart and liver.
The gums are a boundary to the bloodstream, so regular, professional dental care for your pet is an important factor in the overall health of your pet. Unfortunately, neglecting dental care can put your pet at higher risk for serious illness.
Digital dental radiographs, done right her in the hospital, allow us to evaluate dental health below the gum line, an area not visible during regular physical exams, and is an important part of professional dental care.
