To further highlight the significance of oral hygiene, it is a fact that your pet’s gums and teeth are very easily prone to bacterial infection due to poor oral hygiene and these bacteria can reach the heart linings through the oral cavities or lesions. Such conditions can lead to serious health problem called bacterial endocarditis. Similarly, life threatening conditions such as kidney damage and joint problems are a common sequel to bacterial invasion through the unhealthy oral cavities.
