What are oral of nutrition health conditions?

It can be difficult to keep your pet´s teeth clean, so oral health problems are very common.

In fact, research shows that at around the age of 2, 70% of cats and 80% of dogs have some sign of dental disease.1 Problems usually start with a buildup of sticky plaque that hardens to form tartar. If not removed, this can lead to gingivitis, a painful condition of inflamed gums, and eventually periodontal disease may develop. Pets may lose teeth and be prone to infections that may affect other organs in the body.

What causes oral health conditions?

Age—Dental disease is more common in older pets.

Breed—Small dogs are more likely to have overcrowded or misaligned teeth that are difficult to keep clean, making them more prone to dental disease.

Food—Feeding sticky foods can lead to a more rapid buildup of plaque.
