Efficient Pet Teeth Cleaning in Tuckerton, NJ
Did you know...?
Periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease, is the most common medical condition in dogs and cats. By age three, your pet will very likely have traces or early evidence of gum disease. While you may not see it immediately, nor do you think it's an urgent matter to take care of, it can quickly worsen as they grow older and preventive measures aren't taken. Just like our own smiles, early detection and treatment are critical for better overall health.
Without treatment, periodontal disease can cause severe problems, discomfort, and pain for your pet. They're unable to care for certain areas of their bodies the way we are, so we urge pet owners to bring them in for routine checks and cleanings. If the periodontal disease worsens, your pet's mouth isn't the only area that's affected - other health issues found in relation to this disease include kidney, liver, and heart muscle changes.
