Planning For Dental Care Expenses
Understanding the Costs for Cat and Dog Dentistry
Even relatively mild dental disease requires specialized medicines and more sophisticated equipment to ensure the pet’s safety, which certainly adds to the cost of veterinary dental care. Many pet owners understandably feel these costs are too much. However, they should be put into perspective.

- Dental infection puts your pet’s immune system under stress, leading to comprised function of the heart, kidney, and liver. In very extreme cases the infection can cause septicemia and death.
