Is stinky breath coming between you and your pet?
Despite what you may have heard, bad breath isn’t something that all pet owners must simply learn to live with. In fact, to the contrary, it’s usually a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without adequate care, your companion’s mouth can attract and harbor dangerous bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, this is entirely preventable.
The professional dentistry services at Quail Pointe Veterinary Hospital 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 an exam. We’ll utilize cutting-edge techniques and technology, including dental radiology, to identify the problem. This will enable us to address issues quickly and improve the prognosis for your loved one. 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 Quail Pointe Veterinary Hospital can help get you there!
