Pet Dental Health

Maintaining your pet’s dental health is a critical part of their overall well-being. Just like humans, pets can suffer from dental issues that, if left untreated, can lead to serious health problems. Our veterinary services include comprehensive dental care to ensure your pet’s mouth remains healthy throughout their life.

Importance of Dental Health

Dental health is more than just a cosmetic issue for pets. Poor oral hygiene can lead to dental diseases such as periodontitis or gingivitis, which can in turn affect the liver, kidneys, heart, and other parts of the body. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are vital to prevent the build-up of plaque and tartar, identify signs of dental disease early, and keep your pet’s mouth healthy.

Yearly Dental Cleanings

We recommend yearly dental cleanings for all pets. These cleanings are performed under anesthesia to ensure a thorough examination and cleaning of the teeth and gums. Our veterinary team will perform a comprehensive dental procedure that includes plaque and tartar removal, teeth polishing, and thorough examination for any dental issues. This proactive approach helps prevent dental diseases and allows for early detection and treatment if needed.

At-Home Dental Care

In addition to professional cleanings, at-home care is essential for maintaining your pet’s dental health. Here are some steps you can take:

  • Regular Brushing: Brush your pet’s teeth regularly with toothpaste specifically designed for pets. This can reduce plaque and tartar build-up and keep their breath fresh.
  • Dental Treats and Toys: Provide dental chews and toys that help clean the teeth and gums as they chew.
  • Diet: Feed your pet a balanced diet, and ask your vet about foods that promote dental health.
  • Regular Check-Ups: Keep up with regular vet visits to monitor your pet’s dental health and catch any early signs of problems.

Recognizing Dental Issues

As a pet owner, it’s important to be aware of the signs of dental issues in your furry friend. Look out for the following symptoms:

  • Bad breath
  • Difficulty eating
  • Excessive drooling
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Loose or missing teeth

If you notice any of these signs, it’s crucial to schedule a visit with us for a dental check-up. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any concerns or questions about your pet’s dental health.
