The duo discusses everything from the importance of dental care to new treatments and care happening.

Below is a partial transcript. Listen to the full podcast for more.

Curt Coffman, DVM, FAVD, DAVDC: The mouth is the entrance to the body and so if it doesn't work correctly or if it's inflamed or uncomfortable, then the pet can't get the nutrients properly that they need. And so that's the first thing you know, and because it's a it's a portal to the insides, it's also for the good things like nutrients. If if there if it's infected or inflamed, then it's an avenue for that infection or inflammation to go to other organ systems or other places in the body. So if we don't take care of it, then it's going to lead to other problems, not just locally in the mouth, but you know, regionally and systemically.
