Dental Disease

Dental care of dogs and cats is one of the most commonly overlooked areas of pet health care. In fact, a recent AAHA study showed that approximately two-thirds of pet owners do not provide the dental care that is recommended as essential by veterinarians. What’s more, the American Veterinary Dental Society reports that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age three. Dental disease doesn’t affect just the mouth. It can lead to more serious health problems including heart, lung and kidney disease, which makes it all the more important that you provide your pets with proper dental care from the start. Your pet’s dental health isn’t just in the hands of your veterinarian though.There are many things you can do at home, such as brushing, talking to your veterinarian about a good dental diet and feeding treats that reduce tartar accumulation.

The staff at Animal Clinic West recommend either
1) Hills t/d
2) Medi-Cal Dental diet
