Our four-legged friends don’t brush their teeth and they aren’t too fussy about what they chew sometimes. So, it's not surprising that dental disease is a very common problem in our pets. Regular dental exams, just like us, help keep the teeth and mouth of our friends healthy.

It is estimated that 70% of cats and 80% of dogs over three years of age have periodontal disease. If left untreated, affected teeth can become infected causing pain, bad breath, difficulty eating and, in some cases, serious diseases such as heart disease from bacteria in the blood. Cats and dogs use their mouth like we use our hands, so it’s important that we help them to live an active, healthy and pain free life by caring for their teeth.
