Oral Health-Center West Animal Hospital
Oral health for your pet is just as important as oral health for you. Unfortunately, our pet’s teeth often go unchecked for years. Food particles and bacteria can get trapped in your pet’s mouth and cause teeth to decay along with bone and surrounding soft tissue.
The most common problem is periodontal disease, which can range from mild to severe. Signs and symptoms include but are not limited to:
- Discolored teeth
- Foul smelling breath
- Bleeding or swollen gums
- Abnormal eating or chewing
- Loose teeth
- Drooling (excessive)
- Constant pawing at mouth/face
Having your pet’s mouth and teeth examined annually can lead to early detection of dental disease, saving teeth. Not only can we show you how to brush your pet’s teeth, but we can also discuss the best treats and chews to help reduce tartar and plaque buildup.
