Approximately 80% of dogs and cats over the age of three can have some sort of dental disease which becomes more severe with age. Some breeds may develop this at an earlier stage. If left untreated, it can become a major issue for pets and owners. Dental disease can lead to more serious problems such as illnesses related to the heart, liver and kidneys. It is for this reason that pets require regular health checks at the vet.

Symptoms of Typical Dental Disease:

  • Bad breath / doggy breath
  • Tarter build up
  • Bleeding of Gums
  • Inflammation of gums
  • Gum loss
  • Weight loss

How to Avoid or Reduce Dental Disease:

  • Feed hard pellets, no soft food
  • Give healthy treats like dental biscuits
  • Brush teeth with veterinary toothpaste
  • Apply gum treatments on a regular basis
  • Use oral treatments in water
  • Feed good quality food
  • Annual dental examinations
