Are Your Pet's Teeth In Good Shape? 3 Products That Can Improve Your Cat Or Dog's Oral Health
How is your pet's breath? Bad breath is one of the first signs of declining oral health, and can start in cats and dogs as young as 3 years old. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, happens when the teeth are not properly cared for and plaque forms. When plaque isn't removed, it hardens into tartar, which inflames the sensitive gum tissue. Bacteria from the plaque and tartar can also migrate into the gums, causing pain, infection, loose teeth and systemic illness.
