Pet Dental Care: A Cornerstone of Good Health

Pet dental care can help protect your pet's wellness

When it comes to pets, it’s easy to underestimate the importance of dental hygiene – until you encounter a problem. Most pets have some form of dental disease by the age of 3, and without proper intervention, this can lead to pain, tooth loss, and major health complications later on.
