American Veterinary Medical Association's annual effort to remind pet owners to care for their pet's teeth.
Periodontal infections have been linked to several major disorders such as diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, and kidney disease. It is leo the most common health problem veterinarians find in pets. By the age of two, an estimated 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats already have some form of periodontal disease.
There are many good chews and products that help keep teeth clean, but it's still best to brush pet's teeth every day. The pets should also have regular cleanings by a veterinarian.
