Dental care for dogs is important at the practice of Dr. Gore. This may be due, in part, to the fact that many staff members have dogs. This may also be due to their in depth understanding of dentistry and the fact that even dogs require dental care.
Dogs are just like people when it comes to their oral cavity. While dogs are not prone to cavities, they are more prone to gum disease which has been linked to heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease and other bodily diseases. This is what makes regular teeth brushing important for your dog. Proper teeth brushing for your dog will remove plaque build-up to prevent tartar and the cause of gum inflammation which leads to gum disease. So, you’ll want to brush your dog’s teeth every day. You may also want to make sure you to feed your dog hardened food and purchase chew toys which can help break up plaque build-up.
Dental Care by a Doggie Dentist
Dental care for dogs is also important by a doggie dentist. In fact, pet insurance companies will often pay for all or a portion of a professional cleaning once a year. Teeth brushing can remove most of the plaque build-up, but some plaque build-up requires professional deeper cleaning. A professional dental cleaning can take away plaque build-up and eliminate unsightly tartar.
