Dentistry and Your Pet

During your annual vet check, you should also have your dog’s teeth checked. Healthy teeth and gums are important for your pet’s health and wellbeing. General maintenance of your dog’s teeth starts with the prevention of plaque build-up. Plaque traps germs leading to infection of the gums and periodontal tissue. Infection in the mouth can also enter the blood stream and affect major organs such as the heart and the kidneys. Corruption in the mouth can also pass into the blood stream and effect major organs such as kidneys and heart.
