Does your best friend have bad breath? Despite what many pet
owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a
sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria,
and over time bacteria lead to plaque and tartar buildup on
your pet’s teeth. As dental disease progresses, other signs
can include drooling, discomfort while chewing, and loose or
missing teeth. Even if you’re using treats and chews to help
control tartar, these are frequently not enough to keep dental
disease in check. Ask us about the best ways to control plaque
and help protect your pet from dental disease.
We will examine your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine
if there are any dental issues you should know about. After a
brief visual examination, we may recommend a more detailed
examination under anesthesia, dental x-rays, a dental cleaning,
or extraction of diseased or loose teeth. Our hospital prides itself
in providing these procedures at an affordable cost.
Even if you think your pet’s teeth and gums are fine, we can offer
expert advice to help you keep them that way! Many dental problems can be managed through at-home care and by bringing your pet to us for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings.
