Treating your pet’s gum disease

Periodontal Health Is Gum Health

Dogs, cats, and people all have something in common: Gum health impacts our overall health and well-being. Some of us are more prone than others to plaque, calculus, and gingivitis, but we all benefit from clean teeth and healthy gum tissues. As you would expect, prevention is the best medicine, and prevention means keeping the teeth as clean as possible.

Home Care

Prevention at home for dogs and cats includes measures such as daily brushing of the teeth, using dental wipes, water additives, food additives, and chews, and in some cases, following prescription diets**. Every pet is different. They do not all accept the same things, and various measures work better for some than for others.
