A neglected part of animal health is Dental Care. It is important to regularly clean your dog or cat’s teeth. Within hours of eating, plaque forms on the teeth. In the natural environment they bite through skin, feathers, flesh etc. and all of these actions help to clean the teeth while they take in nutrition. We feed our dogs food that has no natural scraping action so we have to do that for them. Be very careful when brushing your dog or cat’s teeth to avoid being bitten.
