Dental care is vital to any animal’s overall health! The gums act as a barrier to the bloodstream, meaning poor oral health can actually lead to illnesses in other parts of the body like the heart, liver, and kidneys.
Proper dental care starts with pet owners providing dental chews and other mechanical action (like brushing) at home. But it also includes professional cleanings that can only be done at the veterinary clinic. This is because plaque and tartar build up beneath the gums and is not visible or accessible to pet owners.
