Furry Friend Smiles are Really Important!!

Dental Problems Can Lead To More Serious Health Issues

We want to keep your furry friends smiling! Yes, we want them to be happy, but did you know that neglected oral care could lead to serious health issues like organ damage? In fact, infected gums can cause bacterial infections that affect internal organs such as the kidney or the heart!!

When the plaque builds up around your pet's teeth and is not brushed away it leads to tarter. Tarter is the calcification or hardening of the bacteria. Tarter destroys tooth bones and gums, leading to tooth decay and pain.

 

The bacteria can build up and enter the bloodstream and can damage the heart, liver, and kidneys.

Why Is My Dog’s Breath So Bad?

Your Pup Needs More Than A Breath Mint

Most of our furry friends don't have the best breath, but we love them anyway! However, if you notice that your furry friends breath is chronically bad and seems to be getting worse it's time to take action. Serious bad breath could be a sign of the beginning of tooth decay!! We recommend you visit the vet for a check-up and then get your furry friend a dental chew to maintain healthy teeth. 

Keep Plaque From Bulding Up In Your Pet's Mouth

We highly recommend choosing all natural chews that can help to scrape the plaque and tarter off their teeth and gums! Petz offers many all natural choices to keep your pup a happy chewer!

We also recommend a professional cleaning at the vet twice a year. This can be especially helpful for kitties.
