Watch for Signs of Dental Problems
Pets, like people, benefit from having healthy teeth and gums. Routine check-ups and cleanings are even more important in pets, who may not be able to communicate that they are experiencing pain or discomfort. In addition to bringing your pet in for teeth cleaning on a regular basis, we recommend calling our office if you notice any signs that your pet may be having a dental problem.
Signs may include difficulty eating, excessive drooling, an unwillingness to eat, or other unusual behaviors. There may even be visible signs, like swelling or tooth discoloration. If you notice these, call us and we will help you determine the best course of action.
Why Dog Dental Care is Important
Overall dog dental health contributes to overall health. Let's dive into a few reasons to manage your dog's dental care:
- Prevent bad breath. We know you love your dogs but could likely go without the bad breath. Dental care can help keep this under control.
- Prevent tooth loss. As your dog ages, so do their teeth. Regular dental care can ensure that their teeth are strong and healthy.
- Prevent organ damage. Yes, you read that right. Sometimes, bacteria in the plaque of the mouth can find its way into the bloodstream and result in damage to the liver, heart, and kidneys. Proactive oral health can prevent bad bacteria from spreading.
- Prevent worsening dental disease. Many dog's develop dental disease by the time they are three years old, but with regular dental care - you can prevent severe dental disease.
