Dental Care Did you know?
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some degree of periodontal disease by the age of 3 years!
Pets with periodontal disease constantly swallow bacteria and the bacteria gets into the blood stream. This bacteria can land in places like the HEART, KIDNEYS, LIVER and other organs leading to disease and organ failure.
Bacteria from your pet's mouth is transferred to you and your children every time they give you kisses.
At VALLEY GLEN VETERINARY HOSPITAL, we can address all of your pet's dental concerns and needs. When you visit us, we can discuss a preventive plan for your pet's dental health. Our dentist tells us that we should brush, floss, use mouth rinses and have our teeth cleaned regularly.
Why should we approach our pet's teeth any differently? We recommend routine brushing, C.E.T. chews, mouth rinse and regular dental cleanings.
