7-28-12: pets have teeth too
Our expert guest on the July 28th show was Dr. Carlos Rice, a board certified specialist in veterinary dentistry. Dr. Rice discussed with our listeners how common dental disease is in dogs and cats. Studies have shown that 85 percent of dogs and cats will have dental disease by 3 years of age. Dr. Rice also discussed the importance of at-home care regarding this preventable condition. He then discussed some of the advancements and techniques that a veterinary dental specialist can provide a pet, such as root canal therapy, advanced surgical techniques, and jaw fracture management.
