Will a dental stick a day keep the vet away? That’s what many dog lovers believe these days, OZY reports, as they’re increasingly caring for their canines’ canines. In 2017, pet owners spent a staggering $5.2 billion on their furry companions’ dental needs — with dog owners twice as likely as cat people to shell out the big bucks for prime dental care.
Is it really necessary? Perhaps more than you think: Over 80 percent of dogs will develop gum disease before they turn 3, prompting vets to suggest dental wipes as the most practical solution.
