Gum infection medication
Did you know that the American Veterinary Medical Association reports that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of three?In honor of Pet Dental Health Month,VPI is once again encouraging pet owners to brush up on their knowledge of dog and cat dental care.
In 2012,VPI policyholders spent more than $9.7 million on dental conditions and procedures,the sixth most common type of claim submitted to the Company during the year. Preventive oral care is not only necessary for pets; it’s financially sound for pet owners. Last year,the average claim amount for pet teeth cleaning was $166. In contrast,the average claim amount for treating dental-related disease was $227.
VPI encourages pet owners to have their pets’ oral health evaluated bi-annually by a veterinarian. Dr. Carol McConnell,VPI’s chief veterinary medical officer recommends,“Between regular veterinary examinations,pet owners should look for the warning signs of gum disease such as bad breath,red and swollen gums,yellow-brown crusts of tartar along the gum lines,and bleeding or pain when the gums or mouth are touched.”
