When you have a pet, you are in charge of making sure they are healthy, buying their food, making sure they get enough exercise and perhaps most importantly, making sure they get their dental appointments in. That’s right — veterinary dental appointments are one of the most important things that you can do for your pet. Even though it might seem a little strange to be so concerned with a pet’s teeth, veterinary dental appointments are crucial to the overall health of your pet. While there are loads of reasons to be concerned with veterinary dental care, here are some solid reasons why you should schedule veterinary dental appointments today.
- Overall Health- Did you know that veterinary dental care isn’t just important because it keeps your pet’s teeth clean? Veterinary dental is important to the overall health of your pet as well. When you have gum disease, which occurs with poor dental care, bacteria that is growing along the gum line can easily hop over to the bloodstream and find themselves travelling through the body to the liver, kidneys and heart. Once there, these bacteria will start setting up shop in the organs and making themselves very comfortable. This is dangerous to the health of your pet, to say the least, and can even cause their death.
- Dental Prevention- A veterinary dental appointment can help keep your pet’s pearly whites both pearly and white! Cleaning can help take care of tartar, prevent cavities and do something about that dog breath or kitten breath that is oh-so-unpleasant.
