If your dog or cat’s unpleasant breath has you dreading their kisses, a serious oral health issue could be to blame. Just like people, pets can have bad breath due to things like tooth and gum decay. And also like people, dogs and cats often experience serious pain or discomfort when those types of problems take hold.

Routine dental care is just as important for your dog or cat as it is for you and the other two-legged members of your family. Unfortunately, though, it is something that is commonly overlooked. At Walnut Street Animal Hospital, we are here to provide dental care for pets in Cary and to help you better understand why it’s so important.

Why Pet Dental Care Matters

Without proper dental care - including exams and professional cleanings - the vast majority of dogs and cats suffer from dental or periodontal disease. In addition to causing bad breath, these issues can lead to pain, discomfort, decreased appetite, and behavioral changes. In time, infections in the mouth can also spread to other parts of the body via the bloodstream. This can result in kidney, liver, and heart disease and, in some instances, premature death.
