Canine and Feline Periodontal Disease - Why it's Important to Keep Your Pet's teeth and Gums Healthy
At Animal hospital of Rowlett, we take your pet’s dental hygiene seriously since advanced periodontal disease can lead to much more serious problems that may eventually affect the heart, liver, and kidneys.
In this video you’ll meet Lucky whose humans noticed he wasn't his normal self. He just didn't seem to be as active and energetic as he normally is. At first they thought he was just slowing down due to old age, but he was actually experiencing problem with his teeth. Nearly 75% of dogs and cats have periodontal disease, so it’s very important to keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy.

If you dog or cat doesn't seem to be acting normally, it could be a sign of poor dental health. Schedule an exam now or call us at 972-412-0101 to have your loved one's teeth examined. It's better to catch a dental problem early before it has a chance to affect other areas of the body.
