Dental Hygiene is one most important health concerns to pets and pet owners. Halitosis or bad breath is often the first sign a client will notice. Often pets will continue to eat, even if the mouth may be in pain. Therefore the actual extent of dental problems may not be readily apparent to many pet owner. If your pet has bad breath, broken teeth or loose teeth, swollen face, teeth discolored or teeth covered with calculus, abnormal chewing or drooping of food from mouth, reduced appetite, pain when touch mouth, bleeding near mouth or blood on chew toys, this should prompt you for a dental exam. This is why your yearly wellness exam is important, so that we can assess your pet’s mouth each year.
Plague starts as early as age 3 and hardens into tartar. We can provide a dental exam to assess your pet’s teeth in our office or in the comfort of his/her home as a house call. However if we recommend a dental cleaning, this service can’t be done your house but will be done in our “state of art”, dental suite. This will allow us to preform the procedure with less stress and less pain for your pet. General anesthesia with intubation is necessary to remove plague and tartar from the entire tooth.
