As with most things in life, if you allow something to gain a foothold, it will eventually take over. Whether we’re talking about weeds, dust bunnies, or pet dental care, the truth is, maintenance is necessary to keep things bright, shiny, and clean. Said another way, if bacteria is left alone inside a pet’s mouth, it will eventually lead to periodontal disease, tooth loss, and even systemic illness. However, The Pet Experts do have good news – this is entirely preventable!
According to an analysis conducted by a pet insurance company in 2013, the average yearly cost to prevent dental disease is about $170. Of course, The Pet Experts recognize this is a sizable price tag, but when you consider it can cost over $500 to treat dental disease annually, the long-term savings and benefits are obvious.
Of all the symptoms that precede a dental disease diagnosis, dog breath is the most common. Unfortunately, by the time you start to smell it, significant damage has already been done. However, good hygiene at home and regular dental cleanings can save you money and benefit your dog far into the future.
