In our culture, a sizable emphasis is placed on the prevention of all sorts of future problems. From debt to disease, poor credit scores to early mortality, we walk a fine, sometimes blurry line between success and disaster. This can also be said for our nation’s pets, especially when their dental health is taken into consideration. With good habits at home, pet dental care can take center stage for a lifetime of health and happiness.
Most pet owners turn a blind eye (or nose, in the case of puppy or kitty breath) to what’s going on inside a pet’s mouth. However, taking a moment every day to address gum color or tooth condition can go a long way toward the prevention of dental disease.
