Just like their human counterparts, animals can also suffer from poor dental hygiene. In fact, almost 80% of dogs and cats over the age of 3 show signs of gum disease, tartar buildup and diseased teeth. By following some simple hygienic practices early on in their lives, you can help your pet keep their teeth and prevent any unnecessary pain they may suffer before receiving treatment.
Some signs and symptoms to watch for if you suspect your pet may have dental issues include:
- Unusual bad breath
- Loss of appetite
If you notice any of the above behaviors from your dog or cat, then schedule an appointment to have your pet examined by our veterinarians.
Once our veterinarian examines your pet and a course of action is decided you can be assured that all procedures and treatments will be considered necessary and will be cost effective. Our veterinarians can perform the following on your pet: dental cleaning, tooth repair, tooth extraction, and root canals.
