At Day Creek Animal Hospital we are here to keep your pet's teeth and mouth healthy. All too often, pet owners unknowingly neglect their pets' dental and oral health, which can result in long-term problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Here in or office, we make it easy to incorporate dental services with your pet's other health and wellness care.
So, why is dental care so important? Just as in humans, your pet's oral health is often a good indication of his or her overall physical health. For example, did you know that pets with gum disease also tend to be at a higher risk for heart problems?
Dental care is a form of preventative care and is just as important as your pet's annual wellness exam and vaccinations. Without regular dental exams and cleanings, your pet could develop gum disease (also known as periodontitis), which can lead to permanent tooth loss and other health problems. Furthermore, a lack of teeth cleanings can lead to tooth decay, which can be very painful for your pet.
In our office, we're happy to offer all the dental care services your pet could need to achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums. This includes:
Whether your pet is displaying signs of gum disease (such as red, inflamed, or bleeding gums) or has simply never had a teeth cleaning done, we recommend you schedule an appointment with our pet dentist.
In addition to regular exams and cleanings, there are a number of steps you can take to improve your pet's dental health at home. For starters, if you're not doing so already, try to get into the habit of brushing your pet's teeth. Believe it or not, there are special tooth brushes and even tooth pastes made for dogs and cats that you can find at your local pet supply store.
In addition to brushing your pet's teeth, talk to your vet about the best types of food to serve your pet for oral health. For instance, while many pets enjoy a can of wet food from time to time, did you know that dry food is much better for your pet's teeth?
Finally, be sure to look into other products that can help your pet's oral health. There are all kinds of special toys, treats, and even water additives that can help to clean your pet's teeth and reduce plaque build-up.
