Did you know gum issues aren’t just a human health problem? Studies show that gum issues also affect dogs & cats. Just as with humans, if left unattended it can lead to more serious problems such as heart disease. In fact, the more we learn about our four legged friends, the more we learn that oral hygiene care is just as important to our pets as it is to us. That means brushing and regular cleaning!
Good oral care can help your pet live a longer and healthier life. Bones and pet treats alone won’t keep your dog’s teeth healthy; just like humans, most domesticated pets need professional scaling, flossing and polishing to keep their teeth in prime shape. Dreaded “doggy breath” is usually the result of gas given off by bacteria that live in your pets mouth! The more bacteria your dog or cat has in its mouth, the more severe the odour. Good oral care can help to significantly reduce “doggy breath”. Challenging as it may seem, brushing your dog or cats teeth is one way to help them maintain oral health for life.
At K-9 Brite Bark we show you how! We also carry a variety of supplements and products to ensure the best oral health for your pet, allowing you to keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible between cleaning visits.
