Comprehensive Pet Dental Care in Canyon Country
Bad breath, bleeding from gums, trouble eating, pain and discomfort – are some of the symptoms you may notice with dental disease. However, maintaining oral health is important for your pet’s overall health. Chronic dental disease and inflammation has been shown to have negative effect on the kidneys, liver and heart. Dental disease in dogs and cats can start at a very young age. It is important to focus on prevention with proper diet, teeth brushing when possible, dental treats etc.
Following an assessment of your pet’s dental condition, we would recommend dental cleaning.This is done under general anesthesia and allows us to perform thorough teeth cleaning, polishing, and even extractions if needed. We will further advice you on how to keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy.
Signs of oral and dental diseases in dogs and cats:
- Bad breath.
- Loose teeth or teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar.
- Your pet shies away from you when you touch the mouth area.
- Drooling or dropping food from the mouth.
- Bleeding from the mouth.
- Loss of appetite or loss of weight (this combination can result from diseases of many organs, and early veterinary examination is important).
