Just like people, our furry family members need dental care for their overall health. Left unchecked, bacteria can grow on our pet’s teeth, causing the teeth to decay prematurely. Some bacteria that grow on the teeth of animals can actually cause damage to their organs including their heart and kidneys. Dr. Scott recommends dental care as early as one year of age to best protect your pet from periodontal disease. Some signs of dental disease include bad breath, difficulty chewing and eating, and has browning teeth and reddish gums. Our caring veterinarians understands that maintaining your pet’s dental health early can result in better overall health and result in long-term savings by avoiding corrective dental procedures in the future.
