Why get your pet's teeth professionally cleaned? The answer is simple: Health. It's all about keeping your pet healthy so they can live long happy lives. Unfortunately, when teeth aren't cleaned regularly periodontal disease and gingivitis are a high risk which can lead to heart, liver and kidney failure if left untreated. The signs are the same in humans as in animals.
Some signs to look out for:
- Bad breath
- Changes in eating habits
- Yellow to brown crust on teeth
- Bleeding gums
Brushing is the best method to clean teeth and must be done daily, just as you or I would. You must use special toothpaste without fluoride because animals can not swallow the fluoride in our regular toothpaste. The C.E.T. brand toothpaste contains oral enzymes that are meant to be swallowed and work with the saliva. They are safe and effective.
