Dental Disease and Your Pet

Dental disease is the most common illness encountered today in veterinary medicine today, affecting 8 out of 10 pets.

Unfortunately, it is also the most untreated disease.

Dental disease puts tremendous demands on your pet's organs, spreading infection and weakening the liver, kidneys and heart.

This additional stress can lessen your pet's quality of life and shorten life expectancy. Pets often go for years with painful gingivitis, fractured teeth or severe tooth root abscesses, without noticeable clinical signs to the owner.
