Dental disease or periodontal disease is the most widespread disease associated 80% of dogs and 70% of cats. It can lead to irritated gums, painful dental infections, tooth loss and can cause bacteria to travel through the bloodstream and compromise vital organs. Fortunately, with a proper dental routine designed for our pets periodontal disease, in most cases is preventable.
Here are 5 easy signs to look for in your pet:

3. Red and bleeding gums
4. Difficulty eating or chewing
