Dental disease is the most common health problem for pets. By age three, approximately 80% of dogs and 75% of cats have some degree of periodontal disease.
If left untreated periodontal disease can lead to tooth decay or tooth loss. In addition dental disease can result in the showering of bacteria throughout the body. This situation may eventually cause kidney, liver or heart disease.

2. How often should your pet have a dental cleaning?
Dogs and cats should have a veterinary dental cleaning annually starting at age two, or sooner if they have some other oral health problem identified earlier.
3. Bad breath means a big problem.
Bad breath is a sign of disease. Often it may mean that oral disease is present in your pet’s mouth, not that their teeth are just dirty. Bad breath is often an indication of periodontal disease which lurks beneath the gums and can eat away at bone, oral tissue and tooth structure. Severe periodontal disease can also affect other organs, such as heart, liver and kidneys, as the disease progresses.
