It’s hard to believe, but it’s thought that around 75% of cats and dogs over the age of 4 years old have some form of dental disease.

If plaque is left to accumulate on teeth, gum inflammation (Gingivitis) may occur, which if left untreated, could lead to gum recession, causing roots to be exposed. This can be quite painful for your pet and may result in tooth loss in the long term.

The best way to combat this is through regular teeth brushing, although, a large, hard plaque build up may need a scale and polish.
