It is estimated that nearly 80% of dogs and 70% of cats develop periodontal disease by the age of three years! Dental disease is not only unpleasant when it results in bad breath, but can cause serious systemic problems in pets as well. A thorough oral examination by a veterinarian is recommended twice yearly and, when necessary, a professional dental cleaning will be recommended.
