What if you never went to the dentist for your entire life? That happens to some pets. Don’t let it happen to yours!
Is your pet due for a dental check-up or cleaning? Just like humans, pets require periodic dental care. Serious complications and conditions like gingivitis and gum disease can lead to other problems that will affect your pet’s overall health.
Signs Your Pet Needs To Visit The Dentist
Bad breath is bad, but its not the only indicator of poor dental hygiene. Other signs to look out for include:
- Difficulty eating/chewing
- Red, swollen gums
- Decreased appetite
- Facial swelling
- Bloody saliva
- Excessive drooling
- Pawing at the mouth
Good dental hygiene for your pet is very important and helps prevent plaque build-up in the future.
To ensure your pets are comfortable during dental procedures, they are performed while your pets are under anesthesia. After your pet’s procedure, our staff members will educate you in maintaining their oral hygiene at home.
