The most common disease that will afflict almost every one of our pets is dental disease. Fortunately, it is one of the most preventable.
The many forms of the disease lead to infections and/or inflammation in the mouth which cause pain and can lead to problems in other organ systems such as the liver and kidney.
Since kidney failure is one of the leading causes of death in cats, anything that will minimize the progression of kidney damage in our feline friends will add considerable time and quality to their lives.
The most common form of dental disease is the easiest to prevent. Tartar, which forms when the easily removable plaque becomes mineralized, leads to gingivitis, gingival pockets, bone loss and infection around the teeth and, eventually, tooth loss.
This same process happens with us. As many of us know from our own experience, these conditions are painful. However, the signs of oral pain in dogs and cats are difficult to detect. Our pets can’t tell us that they have toothaches.
