What is Pet Dentistry?

Pet dentistry involves the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of dental diseases and conditions in dogs and cats. Just like humans, pets can experience dental issues such as plaque buildup, tartar accumulation, and periodontal disease. Regular dental care is essential for maintaining your pet’s overall health and well-being.

Benefits of Pet Dentistry

  • Prevents dental disease and decay
  • Improves oral hygiene and freshens breath
  • Reduces the risk of systemic health problems
  • Enhances your pet’s overall quality of life

When to Tell If Your Pet Needs Dental Care

It’s essential to pay attention to your pet’s oral health and watch for signs that they may need dental care. Some common symptoms of dental problems in pets include:

  • Bad breath
  • Difficulty chewing or eating
  • Excessive drooling
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Discoloration or tartar buildup on teeth

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to schedule a dental examination for your pet as soon as possible.
