Dental Brushing Dogs Teeth

Both animals and people need regular dental care. Surprisingly, though, while the need is the same, the problems are a little different. While humans tend to get cavities, our small animal patients are relatively immune to this process. Instead small animals are more prone to tartar (calculus) and plaque build up, which leads to gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Periodontal disease in animals causes pain, foul breath, eventual loss of teeth, and according to some schools of thought, could cause bacterial infections in internal organs, such as the heart and kidneys.
