Dental problems among dogs are very common. Based on the surveys of several countries report on the prevalence rates of periodontal disease – an infectious, progressive, cyclical and an inammation of some or all of your dog’s tooth’s deep supporting structure – 80% of dogs of varying breeds, gender and over 2 years old examined by veterinarians, have serious discomfort due to their teeth and gums problems. As the dog gets older, this can be a serious health issue because the bacteria and toxins may attack the tooth, bone, gum and connective tissue around the dog’s tooth, which can lead to serious infection and the tooth falling out. The bacteria that cause the infection can also spread to the lungs, liver, kidney and heart if they get into the bloodstream. Hence, taking care of your dog’s teeth will not only lead to a healthier pet, but also help you avoid expensive dental bills.
