The Importance of Cat & Dog Teeth Cleaning

Did you know that dental disease is the single most common disease in pets? About 80% of dogs and cats have some form of dental disease by the time they are 3 years old. This disease not only affects their oral health, but can affect their systemic health as well—not to mention it’s a painful disease! At Pennsylvania Veterinary Care, we aim to reduce the frequency of dental disease in Lansing, MI and the surrounding areas with proactive dental care services for dogs and cats. We recommend and offer routine cat and dog teeth cleaning as well as an effective at-home regimen.

Problems Associated with Dental Disease

Dental disease has the potential to put your pet’s whole health at risk. When oral problems like gingivitis, periodontal disease, and damaged teeth are left untreated, bacteria from dental disease can move beyond the mouth and affect your pet’s heart, liver, and kidneys. Prevention is the best method of treating dental disease—it saves your pet the pain of inflamed gums and damaged teeth. It also saves you the costs of oral surgery to remove diseased teeth!
