Just as pet owners know that caring for their own dental health is important from an overall wellness standpoint, they are increasingly realizing that the same holds true for their furry companions. Oral care is part of most people’s daily routine, and veterinarians, pet product retailers, oral care marketers, and even mainstream media outlets are trying to make it part of a pet’s as well. Pet wellness is one of the biggest market drivers in the pet market, and oral care services and products dovetail directly into this trend. Preventive oral care is a significant part of maintaining a pet’s health and can also help cut down on veterinary costs, delaying or even eliminating the need for costly procedures in the future. With dental disease affecting approximately 80% of dogs and 70% of cats, dental screenings and cleanings in veterinary offices—and an accompanying at-home regimen of good dental practices with oral care products—are more important than ever.
