Here are five reasons why dental hygiene care is necessary:

  • 80% of dogs & 70% of cats have some form of dental disease by 3 years old. (According to the American Veterinary Dental Colledge – AVDC)
  • In addition to the direct consequences of the dental disease, such as: halitosis, tooth loss, periodontal disease; poor oral health plays a major role in overall animal health. The lack of pet dental hygiene care might cause or exacerbat many other health issues, like kidney & heart conditions.
  • Many pets are expoused to various anesthesia risks such as those with medical conditions, or complicated health conditions.
  • Fear of anesthesia risks during dental cleaning is the biggest obstacle to pet’s owners. Every pet owner knows someone who has lost a pet during the anesthesia-based procedure. It’s absolutely horrifiing what suc a drama accerse during a routine procedure, such as pet dental care. This fear is so great that many will forego a necessary dental procedure, allowing treatable conditions to continue to deteriorate.  Standard teeth care procedures have a meager compliance rate.
  • Your local vet practices offering the only anesthesia-based dental hygiene. Most (but not all) of these pet hospitals are limited to disease treatment rather than prophylaxis care & oral maintenance. A dental hygiene program helps advance your dental practice from disease treatments to preventative dental care.
