The Importance of Dental Care
Out of all the members of one's family, the chances are it will not be difficult to guess who has the worst dental hygiene: the pets. They do not brush their teeth, nor do they floss, and this goes on for years.
A full 85% of pets have periodontal disease by age 3 years.
This should not be surprising since there is little difference physically between the dog or cat's tooth and the human tooth. Worse still, the bacteria of the mouth can seed other areas in the body, leading to infection in the heart, liver, kidney or virtually anywhere the bloodstream carries them. Here at Staten Island Veterinary Group we offer comprehensive dental care. Call us to make your dental cleaning today and receive a 20% discount.
