Dental Health for Your Pet

Most people don't realize that dental disease in dogs and cats is one of the most common problems veterinarians have to treat.  As in people, plaque and tartar build up on the teeth.  This is formed by the food particles and bacteria which combine with salivary secretions where the teeth rise above the gum line.  If this plaque is allowed to accumulate unchecked, it eventually causes a variety of dental conditions that range from mild discomfort and bad breath, all the way to root abscesses and difficulty eating. Naturally, when it gets to the latter stages, immediate attention is required. 

 Common Symptoms  Risk factors  Risk Factor Management
