By the age of three, more than half of all cats and dogs are beginning to show signs of dental disease. Infection associated with periodontal disease can be responsible for bad breath, and bacteria can enter a pet’s bloodstream and spread to vital organs such as the liver, kidney, and heart. We recommend dental scaling and polishing to remove plaque and tartar from teeth.
