Importance of Pet Dental Checkups

Dental disease is the most common ailment among cats and dogs with a tendency to cause serious illness and discomfort. What’s more, most pet owners are not even aware that their pet may be experiencing, or suffering, from dental disease until it has progressed.

Regular checkups can help prevent painful oral conditions as well as secondary long-term systemic problems like heart and kidney disease. Dental disease can affect pets of all ages and breeds, from the heavy chewers that cause tooth traumas to the generalized tooth decay from little to no preventative care.

Even genetics can play a major role in a pet’s oral health. Schedule a dental examination today and find out if your pet’s mouth needs more attention!
