Periodontal Disease and Pets: Prevention

Every pet will eventually develop some level of Periodontal Disease.

Periodontal disease is a progressive bacterial infection of the teeth roots and bony structures that cradle the teeth.

  • Infection eats away the bone and causes teeth to loosen and eventually fall out
  • The mouth becomes a dangerous source of infection as the bacteria spread through the blood to the internal organs

Your pet's teeth are currently healthy.

  • Your pet has no tartar accumulation or evidence of infection in the mouth.
  • Without preventative home care, however, this status can change rapidly as pets age.

Treatment Recommendations:

Anesthesia, Dental Cleaning, and Antibiotics are not currently needed.

Home care can significantly slow the progression of POD and delay the need for any treatment.

Home care options include:

  • Teeth brushing (video on our website)
  • CET dental chews
  • t/d food
