Dental Care is Very Important to Your Pet's Health!
Periodontal disease is the number ONE disease diagnosed in dogs and cats. By one year of age over 80% of dogs and cats will be diagnosed with dental disease. Routine dental care is critical to improve, manage, and maintain your pet's overall good health. Undetected dental disease causes pain, inflammation, and infection which can have a significant impact on your pet's health. Untreated dental disease may even lead to more serious conditions, like heart, kidney or liver disease. Therefore, we at Eagan Pet Clinic stress the importance of dental care, and perform a thorough dental exam every year during your pet's annual wellness exam. In addition to daily home care, we also recommend regular professional teeth cleaning starting at one year of age for your dog and cat at our hospital.
