Dentistry in Pets

 

Did you know that dental disease is one of the most overlooked disease in pets?  Most dogs or cats will keep on eating even if their mouth hurts.  You may notice your pet’s teeth are discolored or he seems a little quieter than usual or  maybe doesn’t want to chew bones anymore, they may start chattering their teeth – or they may have no symptoms at all except for bad breath.

Some common signs of dental disease:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Difficulty eating
  • Blood in the mouth
  • Coughing or sneezing

If you notice any of these things we recommend scheduling a check up. During the checkup we will look inside your pet’s mouth to detect any dental or gum disease. We may recommend a dental cleaning to take care of any issues.

Key steps to protecting your pet’s dental health:

  • Brush your pet’s teeth
  • Dental Chews – we recommend natural ones (bully sticks, etc)
  • Routine examinations
  • laser therapy
  • essential oil therapy
  • herbal therapy
