Routine, Preventative Dog and Cat Teeth Cleaning
You wouldn’t go days or weeks without brushing your own teeth or years without visiting the dentist. Neither should your pet. One of the best ways to protect your companion’s smile is by investing in routine, preventative care. Professionally, we offer annual dental exams as well as dog and cat teeth cleanings. This helps to prevent future problems as well as identify existing issues so they can be addressed right away.
Preventative care also involves brushing your dog and cat’s teeth at home, in between vet visits. We recommend brushing your dog or cat’s teeth at least 3 times a week, if not daily. This helps to extend the work we do at our annual appointments, keeping plaque and tartar at bay. If necessary, we may also recommend using certain products, such as treats and toys that have been developed to support oral health in pets.
Advanced Pet Dental Care Services
The majority of dogs and cats over the age of 3 already suffer from some type of dental problem. This means that if you haven’t been diligent about dental care in the past, chances are your companion could be a part of this statistic. The good news is, even if we do find that your pet has a problem, we can help. Our veterinarians are experienced in performing a wide variety of advanced oral health care services, including extraction of diseased teeth and oral surgery.
Signs of potential dental problems in pets include:
- Bad breath
- Pawing at the mouth
- Excessive drooling
- Changes to eating or chewing habits
- Broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are swollen or bleeding
- Swelling of the face
- Pain when touched near the mouth
If your pet is showing any of these signs or symptoms, it’s time to schedule a dental evaluation. The sooner we can get to the bottom of the issue, the better the prognosis for your loved one.
Oral health care should be an integral part of your pet’s normal wellness regimen. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
