Periodontal disease is a destructive and progressive disease. It destroys your pet’s teeth and gums and can actually, in extreme cases, be dangerous enough to cause death. Bacteria cause the gradual destruction of your pet’s gums and that same bacteria can enter the bloodstream and become life threatening. Sometimes teeth crack and become unstable causing your pet pain.
If your pet has bad breath, periodontal disease may be the cause. Look for buildup of yellowish or brownish material on the teeth. This is calculus, tartar or plaque- all signs of periodontal disease.
Good oral health can extend your pet’s longevity and quality of life.
