Untreated dental disease not only can lead to tooth loss, pain, and abscess, but it can also create health problems with the major organs of the body, like the heart and liver. 

The great news is that you can help protect your best friend with at home pet dental care. Your team at Bowman Veterinary Hospital is here with some tips to keep that beautiful smile healthy!
