Why Should I Check My Pet's Teeth?

Tartar build up can cause bad breath and gum recession and if untreated can lead to painful tooth root abscesses and the loss of teeth.

Bacteria from infected gums can also be released into the blood stream and have serious effects on an animals internal organs and make them unwell.

Good teeth hygiene and regular dental checks can help to prevent this.
