National Pet Dental Health Month

What is the number one disease which causes pain, suffering, and health issues for our dogs and cats? This disease is more prevalent than all the other infectious diseases- those which receive routine preventative care. It is the number one health problem our pets face today. Did you say dental disease? Oral (mouth) pain is the most common cause of pain. Dental disease spreads bacteria into the entire body through the blood stream, sending bacteria to the kidneys, liver and heart.

Important fact: Our pets commonly suffer silently with dental pain until dental disease becomes advanced.

Pets with tartar on theit teeth, bad breath, or red gums are key indicators of dental disease. In February, National Pet Dental Health Month, Cornerstone is offering free oral- dental examinations for your pets. Let’s check whether your pet has dental disease or not.
