Poor pet dental care shortens lives

During our interview with Dr. Milinda Lommer, she emphasized the importance of dental care in the lives of our pets.  She observed that understanding the importance of pet dental care is a recent discovery, and that dental care wasn’t even taught in veterinary school until about 15-20 years ago. She said that we now know that infections in the mouth can affect the liver, lungs, kidneys, the heart, and that poor dental health, with its constant production of bacteria, causes a chronic stimulation of the immune system.  And this is true for humans, dogs, cats, or any other species.

Our talk with Dr. Lommer discussed this subject, and many more, in great detail.  Be sure to go to the PetsOnTime interview with Dr. Lommer for a full audio and transcript of our talk with her.
