An important — and often overlooked — area of pet health is dental care. We often assume that our dogs and cats have the natural ability to have and maintain good dental health. But, it is not the case. Just like humans, dogs, cats and other animals with teeth can experience dental issues, from cavities and infections, to gum disease and other ailments. Keeping your pets teeth clean and in good order isn’t necessarily easy. If you’ve ever tried to brush or clean your dog or cat’s teeth, you know what we mean. But there are plenty of ways to take great care of your pet’s dental health and needs, including incorporating strategies with food and toys that can assist in preventing issues and keeping the teeth and gums in good shape.
A great approach is to have a plan in place before issues arise, and that’s a perfect question to ask a veterinarian on Kuddly. Rather than relying on search engines and general (or often wrong!) information, you can get clear, professional answers and insight about your pet’s dental health from veterinarians around the world. Not just in how to care for your pet’s teeth ongoing, but also what to do when issues arise, and what kind of veterinarian care or maintenance can be beneficial or needed.
