But Is It Really That Important? Why Pet Dental Health Truly Matters
Believe it or not, good pet dental health can actually increase your pet's lifespan! But this isn't the only reason why pet dentistry is such an important part of your regular pet care routine. Ensuring that your pet's teeth and gums remain clean will improve its quality of life and help reduce its risk of developing other diseases (since bacteria in your pet's mouth can enter the bloodstream and lead to infection).
It's important to remember that even if your animal isn't showing any signs or symptoms of a dental health problem, you still should be taking your cat or dog in regularly to have a comprehensive pet teeth cleaning and exam. This is the best way to ensure that your pet's teeth and gums remain clean and healthy. In many cases, signs of a teeth or gum disease don't appear until long after the problem has progressed, so routine pet teeth cleanings can actually save you a lot of money in the long-run.
