Though many people have healthy dental hygiene habits for themselves, they tend to ignore their pets’ oral health. As a result, most pets show some signs of gum disease before they reach three years of age.
In this short video from the American Veterinary Medical Association, you can learn how to provide your pets with adequate oral care. In order to stave off gingivitis and other mouth diseases, you should buy pet toothbrushes and toothpaste, and brush your pets’ teeth regularly. You might also buy a collection of chew toys to help scrape off plaque.
