Bad doggie breath is sometimes enough to get a pet owner to think about dental care, but poor oral hygiene in general is a serious matter. Unfortunately, pet dental health is often the last thing to be addressed in the spectrum of pet care services. This is despite what we now know about the link between dental care and your pet’s overall health.
One of the key challenges to pet dental health is misinformation about what constitutes dental care or why it is needed. The false belief that simply giving a pet a bone to chew on or feeding him dry kibble exclusively will result in oral health is often mistakenly accepted as fact.
Can you imagine if you didn’t brush your teeth or see a dentist, relying only on chewing crunchy things? Yikes!
