Bad breath, plaque, tartar build-up and worse–according to the American Veterinary Dental College, cat or dog periodontal disease is the most common medical ailment of adult pets. Because they cannot brush their teeth, bacteria in their mouths form plaque. Minerals occurring naturally in their saliva harden this plaque into tartar, or dental calculus, on their teeth. The AVDC states that most dogs and cats have at least mild periodontal disease by the time they are three years old.
