The Importance of Pet Dental Care

As a pet owner, it is important that your cat or dog receives the dental care he or she needs to stay happy and healthy.

Pet Dental Care

Comprehensive Pet Dental Examinations

Regular dental check-ups are crucial for detecting and preventing dental problems in pets. During the examination at our clinic, our veterinarians thoroughly assess your pet's teeth, gums, and oral cavity for any signs of disease or decay. Early detection of dental issues allows for prompt intervention and treatment, minimizing discomfort and potential complications for your pet.

Professional Dental Cleanings

In addition to routine dental exams, professional dental cleanings are recommended for your pet's oral health. We perform thorough cleanings to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria buildup from your pet's teeth, which can lead to periodontal disease if left untreated. We utilize safe anesthesia protocols to ensure your cat or dog’s comfort and safety throughout the cleaning procedure.

Signs of Dental Issues

It's essential to be aware of the signs that may indicate dental issues in your pet. Bad breath, swollen or bleeding gums, difficulty chewing, and changes in appetite can all indicate potential dental problems. If you notice any of these symptoms, contact our veterinarians for a thorough evaluation.

Preventative Measures

Prevention is important when it comes to pet dental care. There are steps you can take at home to promote good oral hygiene for your pet. Brushing your cat or dog’s teeth regularly, providing dental treats and toys, and incorporating are healthy diet all effective ways to prevent dental problems.
