How Can You Maintain Your Dog’s Oral Hygiene?
There are various simple practices that you can incorporate into your pet's daily routine to prevent dental diseases that might end up affecting the animal's general health.
Brush Your Pet’s Teeth
Brushing teeth can be good oral health, even for animals. Although most animals cannot tolerate tooth cleaning.
Reward Him with Dental Chews
Dental chews are great alternatives to sweet and acidic dog treats. They are good solutions for dogs that cannot sit still through the brushing session. While the dog nibbles on the chew, it cleans your pet's teeth, minimizing build-up and polishing his teeth surfaces.
Take Him for Regular Dental Cleaning
Our veterinarians are professionally trained to identify, prevent, and treat dental problems. Routine teeth cleaning can help ensure your pet's teeth stay healthy and allows a vet on our veterinary team to detect potential issues early.
Signs of Bad Oral Health in Animals
Check your pet's teeth and gums routinely to ensure everything is well. The following signs might visit to the vet:
- Bad breath
- Fractured or lose teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Excessive drooling and abnormal chewing
- Reduced appetite
- Red or bleeding Gums
- Swelling around the teeth and mouth
These signs could indicate the onset of more serious dental problems such as infections, mouth tumors, other pet dental problems.
What Are Veterinary Dentistry Services?
Veterinary dentistry includes pet dental care services such as cleaning, extraction, and other oral care procedures. These services are performed by a member of our team that will help make sure your pet’s dental health is maintained.
A dental pet exam may involve assessing the teeth and gum line. This is necessary because dental diseases can affect the gums and the roots.
