Unfortunately, most dogs and cats develop periodontal disease by the age of 3. Do you know the major cause of periodontal disease? Bad Breath! There’s no such thing as “doggy bad breath” or “cat bad breath.” Even senior dogs or cats shouldn’t have bad breath. If you notice your pets’ breath smell, see your veterinarian.
Other Signs of Periodontal Disease
– bleeding, swollen or red gums
– tartar on teeth
– excessive drooling
– bumps or lumps in the mouth
– discolored and loose teeth
– difficulty chewing or loss of appetite
– unwilling to play or decrease in energy
To protect your pet’s from other infection, it is important to treat and control periodontal disease. If not treated, it can lead to dangerous health conditions such as lung, kidney, or heart disease.
The best thing for your pet’s dental health is a daily brushing. However for some pet parents, brushing can be challenging. Many pets are fuzzy and don’t like to get their teeth brushed.
Keep Your Pet’s Teeth Clean Without Brushing
There are a number of alternatives to brushing to help your pet maintain good oral health. Dental Chews are essentially treats that help your pet’s overall dental health through ingredients, texture and shape of the treat.
