Most humans spend a year or two with braces. Does your pooch need them too? Being a pet owner, I know that dog dental hygiene is very important. However, I did not realize just how important it was until I saw a news article covering a dog getting, well, braces! Dogs can also have crowns and root canals. Surprisingly, better dentistry can add years to the life of a pet, along with reducing a tremendous amount of pain caused by bad teeth.
