common dental issues in pets
Maintaining your pet’s dental health is essential for their overall health. Left untreated, dental disease can cause chronic pain, eroded gums, and deciduous teeth. Having pet dental insurance in place can help you stay prepared for common illnesses like gingivitis and periodontal disease, which can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars to treat. Dental disease coverage through an ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance plan can help alleviate expensive vet bills if your cat or dog develops a dental disease that requires ongoing care.
Dental Disease Insurance for Dogs
If your pup is over four, chances are high they’ve developed periodontal disease; 90% of dogs* do. Other common canine dental issues include deciduous teeth, gingivitis, malocclusions, and unerupted teeth.
Dental Disease Insurance for Cats
More than 70% of cats* over two have developed periodontal disease, which can damage the gums, ligaments, and bone, leading to serious health problems. Along with periodontal disease, feline dental issues include stomatitis, abscessed teeth, and gingivitis.
