Infections that begin in the mouth can also enter the bloodstream and rapidly travel through the body. This could potentially result in damage to the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and brain. Poor oral health can also lower your dog or cat’s quality of life and reduce their life expectancy.
The Positive Effects of Pet Dental Care
When you have your dog or cat’s teeth cleaned and examined by a veterinarian, you’re taking significant steps toward eliminating plaque and tartar buildup and lowering their risk of tooth damage and infections. Also, pets who have good oral hygiene live two to four years longer on average than those with owners who neglect this important part of their health.
At Jean A. Fromm D.V.M. P.C., we believe providing quality oral care for your dog or cat is one of the most important ways you can contribute to their overall health. Our dental care services include pet teeth cleaning, plaque removal, tartar removal, and cavity treatment for your furry friend.
