Pet Dental Care

Dental Care for Dogs and Cats

Be sure your pet receives routine dental care for great dental hygiene and overall good health!

Why is Dental Care for Pets Important?

Dental care is an important and often overlooked factor in keeping your pet healthy and happy. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by three years of age. Consistent home dental care and routine professional examinations can help prevent problems like bad breath or oral infections.

The signs

There are many different ways to check and see if your pet may be having dental issues, but there are also signs that may not be as visible. This is why veterinarians recommend having your pet’s teeth checked and cleaned at least once a year. Here are some things to keep an eye (or nose) out for:

  • Bad breath
  • Broken, lose, or missing teeth
  • Discoloration of teeth, or tartar build up
  • Excessive chewing or drooling
  • Reduced appetite or inability to chew
  • Swelling and bleeding in or around the mouth
