"How goes the mouth, so goes the health," said Dr. Bert Dodd, clinical professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. "Overall health can be affected by oral disease, which can get into the blood stream and affect the animal's internal organs and joints."
Dental disease affects a significant number of pets at any age during their lifetime, and just like with people, there can be serious consequences as a result of poor dental health.
Although pets aren't typically known to have minty-fresh breath, an extremely foul odor can be the first sign of a severe dental problem. "Often, exceptionally bad breath is the first indicator of oral disease," said Dr. Dodd.
"It generally is not a good idea to give your dogs any antlers or calf hooves, and don't let them chew on rocks or bones, as these can potentially cause harm to the gums and teeth," said Dr. Dodd. "You should be brushing their teeth regularly, using water additives, and providing them with safe chew toys" said Dr. Dodd. To play it safe, ask your vet to recommend toxin-free rawhide, nylon and rubber chew toys.
Another important step in caring for your pet's dental health is to have your vet perform a complete cleaning and examination on an annual basis. "Oral examinations and cleaning should be performed on your pet at the very least once a year," said Dr. Dodd.

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- One notable concern among veterinarians during Pet Dental Health Month is anesthesia-free dental cleaning, (sometimes mislabeled as anesthesia-free "dentistry.") According to Johnathon ("Bert") Dodd, DVM, FAVD, DAVDC, a clinical associate professor at Texas A&M University, anesthesia free "dentistry" or "dental cleaning" is simply an attempt to remove debris from the crown of the tooth by either brushing the teeth or scraping the teeth with a sharp instrument while attempting to restrain the patient.
"There is nothing wrong with a groomer or anyone else brushing a pet's teeth; however, to claim that proper cleaning under anesthesia is not needed is a completely false statement," said Dr. Dodd. "Additionally, anyone not under the direct supervision of a licensed veterinarian administering sedatives or anesthetics is committing malpractice. The American Veterinary Dental College has stated that anesthesia is essential for veterinary dental procedures, to ensure that the procedure can be completed successfully. Because some pet owners are reluctant regarding the use of anesthetics, it is important to note that veterinarians are trained to administer a proper dosage of anesthesia to an animal based on health, size and blood work. This creates an extremely low risk for the patient as well as much less pain.
"With over 20 years of experience cleaning teeth on many species of animals, I cannot, nor will I, attempt to clean an animal's teeth without anesthesia because the animal's periodontal structures can be too easily damaged with the use of dental instruments when the patient is not anesthetized," said Dr. Dodd.

Who are we to disagree?
