Dental disease isn’t just about discomfort and “dog breath” — it can cause serious complications for your pet’s overall health. Pets can't tell us when they're uncomfortable, and all too often they hide their discomfort out of instinct. So, regular dental cleanings and oral exams can make a world of difference. If left untreated, dental disease can affect vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, and liver. Watch out for these telling signs of dental disease:
Swollen, red gums
Disinterest in chew toys
Noticeable pain when eating
Typically, most dogs and cats need dental cleanings every 1 to 2 years depending on the level of oral hygiene at home. To maximize your pet’s oral health and lessen their trips to the clinic, be thorough with your at-home care.
Brush your pet’s teeth as regularly as you can. While every day is ideal, it might be troublesome or impossible. For difficult pets, we can discuss other options such as water additives or plaque-fighting chews.
Use only pet toothpaste and brushes for your pet’s teeth. Human toothpaste is not recommended. We offer pet toothpaste, gel, and toothbrushes in the house.
Dental disease is entirely preventable, but only with proper pet dental care. Don’t leave your pet’s dental health to chance—make an appointment with us today!
