Dental health is as critical for pets as it is for us! Tartar and plaque enveloping the gums and tooth base in our pets can shed bacteria throughout the pet body. Aside from the obvious ‘doggie bad breath,’ conditions like kidney failure, facial/skin infections, nasal infections, heart disease and more all can be associated with an infected mouth.

Let me just start off by saying I love Liam Neeson. I think he is an extremely talented and wildly underrated actor. Plus, I always attributed his personal tragedy (wife Natasha Richardson was killed in a skiing accident in 2009) as a contributing factor to his shift in genre preference. The guy went from Kinsey and Schindler’s List to The A-Team and Taken 2 (and 3).
