The recent figures have revealed that dogs in Llandudno have the worst teeth in North Wales.
The dogs from the town are reported to be suffering from the highest number of dental problems in the region.
The main reasons cited for these dental dilemmas are the presence of poor diets constituting of biscuits and other sugary snacks.
PDSA health checks of over 13,000 dogs across the UK in 2007 and 2009 revealed a shocking 5% jump in the number of dogs facing dental problems, with the figure now touching 24% in total.
The best region in England for healthy dog teeth is the North East where only 20% of pets required urgent treatment.
Last night, the town was advised to ponder over their pet’s dental health routines after veterinary charity PDSA posted that nearly 33% of Llandudno’s dogs are losing their teeth unnecessarily.
“I don’t know why Llandudno would be worse than anywhere else”, quoted Chris Cater, who runs Cater Veterinary Practice in Craig y Don. “Perhaps it is because our customers are more conscientious and pick up problems immediately”.
Pensioner Joan MacKenzie from Penrhyn Bay operates Abandoned Animal Association and emphasized the importance of cleaning dog’s teeth.
Experts have claimed that following a strict routine of brushing dog’s teeth or giving formulated dental chews on regular basis could help solve the problem.
