Is bad breath making it difficult to get close to your pet?
Despite what you may have heard, stinky breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, to the contrary, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and lead to other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, dental disease is preventable!
The professional dentistry services at The Animal Clinic include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
If your pet is showing any of these signs, it’s time to schedule a dental exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your companion. We’ll also show you how you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at The Animal Clinic can help get you there!
