Gum disease, which affects 80% of all dogs by the age of two, is a common and potentially fatal canine health problem. If you notice your dog’s breath stinks, the disease has progressed beyond what is healthy.

Bacteria can enter the body through the gums as it accumulates. This can lead to heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and other serious problems if not addressed.

Dogs, like humans, should have toothbrushes, and you should brush your pet’s teeth with a special toothpaste at least once a day to prevent dental problems.
