Cleaning our pets teeth is as important as cleaning our own. Animals that don’t have some form of home dental care will be more prone to dental disease at some point in their life. It is the commonest and yet most easily preventable disease.
Dental disease not only affects the gums and teeth, it also affects the whole body. Bacteria in the plaque enter the blood stream via the inflamed gums and then travels around the body spreading infection. This infection may settle in the kidneys, liver, heart or possibly the lungs, making the animal feel generally unwell.
