Studies show that 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs have dental disease.
Periodontal disease in pets begins with bacteria in the mouth that forms plaque and tartar. Once established, the constant exposure to bacteria can cause damage to major organs of the body such as the heart, liver, and kidneys. Proper dental care can extend your pet’s life by years!
