Do you realize that one of the most common diseases seen in "healthy" pets is dental disease. Our pets' mouths are the most neglected parts of their bodies. Dental problems start with dental tartar forming on the teeth. If not attended to this can progress to severe periodontal disease; including the loss of teeth, sore mouths with gingivitis and bad breath.
Even if you’re using treats and chews to help control tartar, these are frequently not enough to keep dental disease in check. Ask us about the best ways to control plaque and help protect your pet from dental disease.
Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet's health because dental disease can be associated with other serious health problems, such as heart disease and kidney disease. But how do you know if your pet has a healthy mouth? Let us examine your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine if there are any dental issues you should know about. After a visual examination, we may recommend a dental cleaning, or options for at-home dental care.
Even if your pet’s teeth and gums are fine, we can offer expert advice to help you keep them that way! Dental health shouldn’t be taken for granted. Fortunately, many dental problems can be managed through at-home care and by bringing your pet to us for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings.
We want your pet to live a long, healthy life, and we understand that maintaining a healthy mouth is part of that. Your pet’s health is important to us, so let us help you with this commitment. Call today to discuss your pet’s dental care needs and how we can help!
