Dental Disease in Dogs and Cats
More than 80% of dogs and cats over the age of four years have some form of dental disease and, Over time, this plaque hardens into tartar – a hard yellow-brown substance. This build up of plaque and tartar can lead to gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and eventually periodontal disease may develop. Periodontal disease is a painful inflammatory condition where bacteria invade the gums and tissues which hold the teeth in place, damaging them and ultimately leading to tooth loss. These bacteria can also invade the bloodstream, potentially causing damage to the internal organs, in particular the lungs, heart, kidney and liver.
