San Juan Animal Hospital Encourages Pet Owners to
Brush Up on Oral Health
Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets. Although daily tooth brushing is advised for dogs and cats, the reality is that only two percent of dog owners follow through. In addition, 65 percent of dogs with stage one periodontal disease often go untreated because veterinary health care teams do not recommend needed treatment options like dental exams, professional dental cleaning and dental x-rays. This can lead to systemic health problems which can cause serious damage to other areas of the pet’s body.
