As a pet owner, it is important to know the ins and outs of your pet’s dental care. Good dental health is key for a pet’s overall health. During your pet’s wellness visit, our veterinarians will perform a full oral exam if possible. This exam helps our veterinarians determine the best course of treatment for your pet.
Here are some signs to look for if your pet needs a dental check-up:
You may notice your cat or dog isn’t as interested in kibble
Has terrible breath
Regular dental cleanings can prevent your cat or dog from getting gingivitis or periodontal disease, this bacteria can cause:
Oral infections that cause bleeding
Damage to the soft tissues and bone anchoring the teeth
Bacteria entering the bloodstream
Infections elsewhere in the body
Our professional veterinary team is here to help you decide when a dental cleaning or care is needed.
