"Most Pet Owners Completely Overlook This TLC…" by Dr. Karen Becker
Though many pet guardians have developed the excellent habit of regularly brushing their animal companion's teeth and monitoring their oral health, unfortunately, many more have not. We know this because the vast majority ofdogs and cats over the age of three have gum disease.
If your pet has a sore mouth, she can't tell you about it. In addition, it's the nature of both dogs and cats to hide pain so they don't appear vulnerable to predators. This means your pet might really be hurting from dental disease while you remain blissfully unaware there's something wrong.
- The majority of dogs and cats over the age of three have periodontal disease, which means that many pet guardians aren’t paying enough attention to their animal companion’s oral health
- Pets hide pain, including severe dental pain, which is an important reason for taking care of and monitoring your dog’s or cat’s oral health
- Some of the signs of dental pain in pets include stinky breath, behavior changes, and bleeding
- Plaque and tartar buildup on teeth can lead to irreversible gum disease, which can affect your pet’s overall health, including his heart health
- Feeding a raw diet, offering appropriate raw bones, and brushing your pet’s teeth regularly are the best methods for keeping your dog’s or cat’s teeth and gums in good condition
