Why is brushing pets teeth so important?
Untreated, oral diseases in pets can lead to
further health problems. Plaque on pets teeth, and
if tarter is not removed from the teeth, can
cause the gums to separate from the teeth.
Dry food can only do so much to help reduce plaque
Signs to look for:
pain when eating
red inflamed gums
yellow and brown teeth
If the teeth and gums are left untreated, they can
become infected, creating bacteria which can spread
into the blood stream and infect other parts of the
body. Use toothpaste formulated for pets.
Keep the surfaces of the teeth clean by brushing
daily and the gums will stay healthy.
