The Importance of Pet Dental Care
Dental health is often overlooked by pet parents, but it’s actually very critical to the overall health of pets. Bogue Animal Hospital takes a proactive approach when it comes to dental health, and we want to not just treat dental problems; we want to prevent them. Bad breath is usually what tips the scale and drives pet owners to schedule their pets’ dental visits, but we encourage you to not wait until then. The reason is that bad breath is often an indicator of a more serious problem, such as gum disease and systemic infection. More than 50% of all dogs and cats have some form of gum disease by the age of 3. The good news is, with regular professional dental care and at-home care, you can lower or even eliminate the risk.
