Dental Services – Dogs & Cats
Gum disease at its earliest stage is silent, but it can quickly turn into periodontal disease, gum recession, bone loss and infection. Over 80% of pets over the age of 3 years old have periodontal disease.
With the help of routine exams, our dentists can determine the best course of action to keep your pet’s dental health the best in can be. We have the state-of the art dental equipment and digital x-ray to best diagnose and treat your pet’s mouth.
Signs of severe gum disease are:
- Bad Breath
- Head and mouth shyness
- Swelling of mouth or face
- Bleeding gums
- Excessive salivation
- Loose or broken teeth
- Dropping food or chewing on one side of the mouth
Just like humans, the best prevention is to start with regular brushing and cleaning. We can show you how to do home care with dog and cat toothpaste, chewing aids and rinses to keep your pet’s breath smelling fresh.
