"Is it necessary to bring my pet in for a dental?" Yes! Poor pet dental hygiene can lead to a host of other problems for your pet, many of which are preventable.
Does your pet have bad breath? According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), "Don't turn your nose to Fido's or Fluffy's bad breath"! That odor might signify a serious health risk, with the potential to damage not only your pet's teeth and gums but its internal organs as well.
