Brushing your dog and cat’s teeth is an important procedure of overall care. Grime and tartar not only cause bad breath, but can also result in the loss of teeth and more serious dental hygiene issues. Bad teeth can lead to life-threatening and painful infections. These infections can damage the kidneys, heart, and liver. By regularly brushing your dog or cat’s teeth, you will help to boost the health, happiness, and longevity of your canine and feline friends.
