Why is dental care so important? Recent investigations have found that symptoms of oral sickness are present in 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs.
Just as for humans, dogs and cats need regular dental cleanings. How they feel in their mouth has a direct impact on the general health of your pet.
Dental sickness is indicated by bad breath; missing, damaged, or discolored teeth; red, swollen, or bleeding gums; difficulty or pain during eating; pawing at the mouth; and excessive drooling. If you have any of these symptoms, get in touch with our staff, we’ll be happy to help.
Regular dental checkups and cleanings performed under general anesthesia are essential to stop bone loss and tissue irritation. If dental disease is not treated, your pet’s risk of developing heart, kidney, and liver problems may increase. We can perform general cleanings and extractions. Call us right away to schedule an appointment for our veterinarian to examine your pet’s oral health.
