Prevalence of Dental Disorders in Pet Dogs

This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of dental disorders in pet dogs. The study analyzed the dental records of 1,000 dogs that had been examined at a veterinary clinic in the Czech Republic. The study found that 77% of the dogs had at least one dental disorder, with the most common disorders being periodontal disease (69%), tooth wear (17%), and fractured teeth (11%). The study also found that older dogs and small dogs were more likely to have dental disorders than younger dogs and large dogs. The findings of this study highlight the high prevalence of dental disorders in pet dogs and the need for regular dental check-ups and preventative dental care for dogs.
