Happy Valley Animal Hospital’s Dr. Victor Saltzman explains that about 50% of pets that come in their Glendale pet dental & veterinary clinic have dental disease. About 80% of the time the dog dental disease cannot be seen from just a regular exam.
Without proper dog dental cleaning or chewing the bacteria-filled tarter turns into a hard cement-like material coating your dogs teeth. The bacteria then gets under their gums and can causes abscesses. Additionally, the bacteria can get into your pets bloodstream and cause problems with their internal organs, which could reduce your pets life by up to 25 percent.
The good news is that you can help to prevent pet dental disease with proper canine dental cleaning at your local Arizona pet dental and veterinary clinic.
