Bad breath is atrocious in any way shape or form, and that is including your pets. Studies show that by age three, 80 percent of dogs exhibit signs of gum disease. Symptoms include yellow/brown tater buildup along the gum line, red inflamed gums and persistent bad breath. Chronic periodontal disease can become a gateway to serious health issues that affect the heart, kidneys, liver and other internal organs.
Small dog breeds are more likely to develop periodontal disease than large dogs because the teeth of small dogs are often too large for their mouths, according to veterinary dentistry experts.
Developing a dental care program at home for your pet(s) is the first step to helping your pet(s) maintain a healthy mouth.
