Cats and dogs require dental care, much like their human counterparts! Dental disease is one of the top reasons that may cause illness at one point or another in their lives. Infection caused by periodontal disease can have serious effects on many other parts of the body. It is often a very painful condition for your pet, even though many won’t show obvious signs.

It is important to have your pet’s teeth checked for any signs of disease. The earlier a problem is addressed, the easier it is to resolve the issue.
