Does Pet Dental Really Matter?
Don't be fooled into thinking that an animal's dental health is not a big deal. Dental health can have a dramatic effect on every aspect of your pet's health and longevity. Dental issues that are left untreated will often result in serious infections. When these infections reach the bloodstream, they can cause serious and sometimes fatal health problems.
It is also important for your pets’ quality of life, that they have healthy, strong teeth. When teeth are damaged or diseased, they can cause pain for your pets.
What Type of Dental Care Is Available?
As part of the comprehensive pet care we provide at our animal center, pet dental services can include a thorough dental exam as part of your animal's annual pet exam. During this exam, our vet will be able to determine if your pets have any dental issues that need further examination.
If your pets do need further dental care, we can help with that, too.
What Dental Care Should I Do at Home?
You can help keep your pet's teeth healthy at home, too. Be sure to clean your pet's teeth once a day or at least several times a week. Talk with our vet about which types of products you should use to clean your pets’ teeth. You will also want to make sure your pet does not chew on things that would damage their teeth.
