Dental care is vital to the overall health of any animal. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can shower the body and bloodstream with bacteria.
There are many different ways to improve your pet's dental hygiene, including brushing, dental chews, dental diets and regular examinations. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population. In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pet's health.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings, including the area beneath the gums that you can't see or access at home. If your pet has the following symptoms, they may have dental disease:
- brown/yellow teeth
- bad breath
- red/inflamed gums
- difficulty eating
