Research shows that ‘periodontal disease’ – a collective term for several inflammatory conditions in the mouth – occurs in 80% of dogs and 70% of cats by the time they are three years old1. You may not even be aware that anything is wrong because the symptoms can be hard to detect, but as well as causing painful damage inside a dog’s mouth, if left untreated, the bacteria involved can go on to affect other parts of their body.
Brushing your pets’ teeth is considered the ‘gold standard’ of pet dental care as it is the most effective way to remove plaque. Virbac offers a range of specially formulated cat and dog toothpastes, brushing starter kits and a dual-ended toothbrush which are designed to inhibit plaque forming bacteria.
