85% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of three suffer from some form of dental disease. Dental disease, if not managed, can also affect other organs in the body, including the heart and kidneys. Even for pet owners who brush their dogs’ teeth, dental plaque still builds up and can lead to periodontal disease. A dental cleaning not only removes plaque from the visible portion of the teeth, but more importantly, it removes plaque from beneath the gum line, which is the source of infection.
