What are the signs that my pet has dental issues?
A great way to keep on top of your furry friend’s oral health is to brush their teeth regularly. This can be an effective way to look for any dental issues your pet may be experiencing. Some of the most common signs of dental problems to look for include:
- Difficulty chewing
- Bleeding or swollen gums
- Loose teeth
- Foul breath
- Excessive drooling
What happens during a dental appointment?
We care about your pet’s comfort which is why we use a general anesthetic. With the help of our state-of-the-art dental equipment, we thoroughly clean and examine your pet’s teeth. During this time, we may take digital dental radiographs (X-rays) to look for any infections or diseases below their gum line. If needed, we may also perform oral surgery to remove the diseased teeth. After the appointment, we’ll walk you through the best ways to maintain your pet’s oral health at home and provide any tools you may need.
