|Dental care for dogs and cats|
Did you know that, just as in humans, gum disease is very common in pets with typically 85% of pets over the age of 3 affected. A healthy mouth typically has bright white teeth and pink gums. However plaque bacteria are constantly accumulating on the surface of their teeth and will in time lead to inflammation of the gums, a condition known as gingivitis. Regular brushing will help keep your pets mouth bacteria free and prevent medical conditions that can be associated with gum disease. Getting your pet used to daily brushing can take some time and starting from an early age will help. Other options to prevent pet gum disease include using Plaqueoff, Aquadent and logic gel. A healthy diet also plays a big part of managing gum disease in dogs and cats.
