Proper dental care is essential for a dog’s health. In our continuing effort to provide valuable information to pet owners, Affordable Pet Plans, providers of comprehensive health plans for dogs and cats in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Arkansas, researched into dog oral health. (For more information about us, click here.)
According to the American Animal Hospital Association, dental care is among the most commonly overlooked features of pet health. The bad breath often associated with poor oral hygiene is not something to be ignored; if left untreated it can cause significant problems including heart and kidney disease.
Bad breath is not necessarily natural to pets and can be the sign of more significant health concerns. Usually, it is because of plaque and tartar that if not attended to can cause a gum infection. A dog is never too old for tooth brushing.
