Despite what many people think, stinky breath is not normal for pets. It is a sign of dental disease and could mean that your beloved companion is in pain. Unfortunately, animals are masters when it comes to hiding signs of discomfort. And because of this, many animal owners remain unaware of the problems lurking inside their pets’ mouths until they become serious.

Routine dental care keeps that dreaded dog or cat breath at bay while protecting your beloved companion from discomfort, pain, and infections. At Heritage Animal Hospital, we provide professional pet dental care in Sterling, Virginia, and are here to help you maintain your dog or cat’s oral health.

The Importance of Pet Dentistry

Without proper dental care from a veterinarian, most dogs and cats experience some form of periodontal disease. Even minor issues can lead to discomfort, difficulty eating, pain, infections, and behavioral changes when left untreated. Infections in the oral cavity can even enter the bloodstream and damage the heart, kidneys, and liver. Sadly, untreated periodontal disease is a leading cause of premature death in companion animals.
