Periodontal disease is the most common infectious disease in the dog and cat affecting over 85% of all dogs and cats over 3 years of age. The cause of periodontal disease is plaque, which is primarily made up of proteins from saliva, and bacteria. Dental disease causes smelly breath, pain and inflammation in the mouth and eventually tooth loss. We offer year round FREE dental health checks and advise you whether your dog or cat needs professional scaling and polishing or whether good homecare programs can manage ongoing plaque.
