Your Pet's Health - Early detection of health problems can save you and your pet from the pain and heartache that illness can cause. As you get to know your pet, you should become familiar with the normal body characteristics, daily habits, and personality of your pet. This knowledge will help you to be aware of any changes that occur. Listed below are things that you can monitor in your pet between your pet's regular vet exams.

 

Brushing Teeth - Each day, a film forms on your pet's teeth and gums that forms plaque upon thickening. Bacteria proliferate on the plaque and build up along the gum line, causing gum inflammation (gingivitis).

 

Oral Health and Information - Dogs have 28 temporary teeth and 42 permanent teeth; cats have 26 and 30, respectively. Approximately 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3. Cats & Dogs seldom develop tooth cavities, as do humans.
