Eighty Five Percent (85%) of Adult Pets have Dental Disease
Dirty teeth may smell bad, look bad and even be painful, but the damage that you don't see is much worse. Bacteria from your pets’ infected mouth gets in to their blood circulation and eventually leads to heart, liver, kidney, and bone and joint disease, including organ failure.
If you have ever suffered from a cavity, broken tooth, abscess, or sore gums - you know what that pain feels like. Pets are very good at hiding their signs of pain. Most pets will continue eating, even hard food, despite severe mouth pain.
Signs of dental pain in pets can be subtle i.e. being head shy, not wanting to play tug-of-war and chewing only on one side. Signs can also be more noticeable i.e. excessive drooling, not eating and severe weight loss.
