February is about more than just Valentine's Day this year, it's also been declared Pet Dental Month by the American Veterinary Medical Association. Therefore, it's an excellent time for your Los Angeles veterinarian to emphasize the value of pet dental care to your pet's overall health. This month, show your love for your pet by scheduling pet teeth cleaning with your vet in Los Angeles.
Pet dental care offers many crucial health and quality-of-life benefits. Pet teeth cleaning from our pet dentist (AKA your Los Angeles vet) is a powerful way to ensure your pet avoids gum disease. Neglected teeth lead quickly to gum inflammation, gingivitis and periodontal disease, so much so that nearly 90% of pets have gum disease by age 3. If your pet is older, it's not to late to start pet teeth cleaning at our veterinarian in Los Angeles. Gingivitis can be reversed with pet dental care in Los Angeles and even periodontal disease's progression can be slowed.
Left untreated, gum disease bacteria can unfortunately affect major organs and cause systemic health problems. Regular pet dental care in Los Angeles also helps your pet keep a mouthful of healthy teeth, so that s/he can chew well, get adequate nutrition and enjoy food throughout life.
